Great news! Jeanne Parmentier from PS gave a presentation about her PhD work and was awarded for best oral presentation at the 9th International Conference on Canine and Equine Locomotion (ICEL9) in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
The International Conference on Canine and Equine Locomotion (ICEL) takes place every four years and gathers all researchers in the field of equine/canine biomechanics and gait analysis. Jeanne presented her latest PhD works and was awarded best oral presentation in the equine category for her talk about "Applying deep learning to IMU data to classify lameness location in horses".
In this work, she shows that the combination of inertial movement units (IMU), or motion sensors, and Artificial Intelligence (deep learning models) has the potential to help vets and horse owners to detect lameness, which is often caused by pain in the limbs. Keep in touch for future updates!
The award was given on August 31, 2023 during the ICEL9 conference in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
Both presented abstracts are publicly available:
