Rennes, July 12, 2021. GWIZ is a non-invasive solution that detects when a sow comes into heat, predicts the period of ovulation and alerts the farmer instantly to the optimal time for insemination.
GWIZ is based on the combination of a thermal camera that measures the temperature of the vulva and the anus and an artificial intelligence software that analyzes the physiological variations of the body temperature during the reproductive cycle.
GWIZ is sold by Synthèse Elevage which called Dilepix and its Cloud platform of image analysis for the prediction of ovulation from artificial intelligence (Deep Learning).
The project received financial support from the Brittany region following the 2019-2020 call for projects "Experimentation of digital innovations".
GWIZ is a simple and fast solution, only 2 manipulations are necessary: recording the identification number of the sow and photo of the area of interest vulva + anus of the sow.
Once transmitted to the webapp, the analysis results are given to the user in only a few seconds: he will then know clearly which sows to inseminate.
This innovation constitutes a progress because by precisely targeting ovulation, it optimizes the rate of fertility and prolificity.
This DST (Decision Support Tool) is at the crossroads of 3 issues encountered in pig farming:
- Animal welfare: GWIZ is a non-invasive solution that respects the rhythm of the sows and reduces the use of hormones
- Lack of manpower: GWIZ allows a reduction in the number of inseminations and thus optimizes working time
- Control of production costs: in addition to the savings made on the number of insemination doses, GWIZ makes it possible to increase fertility and prolificity performances linked to the precision of ovulation prediction
An innov'Space award for Gwiz ⭐
GWIZ has just won an Innov'Space - 1 star award and will be presented at SPACE 2021 on the AGRETIC platform of Bretagne Développement Innovation (Hall 4 - stand B41)

Dilepix is a startup that combines expertise in artificial intelligence (neural networks developed in-house) with advanced skills in image analysis. The combination of these two technologies allows for ultra-precise detection and localization of agronomic threats and opportunities.
Present in livestock and robotics markets, Dilepix has developed software solutions to automatically monitor the activity of animals (pigs, cattle, insects) in real time. To achieve this, it relies on the images/videos produced by cameras placed in the livestock buildings or embedded in the production lines. The algorithms (deep learning) detect situations that require special monitoring or specific action.
Dilepix solutions are aimed at veterinary groups, pharmaceutical groups, research institutes and agricultural consulting companies.
