JD.com’s digital solutions to lower cost of pig farming

In Beijing on Tuesday, JD Finance rolled out its so-called stockbreeding intelligent solution, a package of digital tools including machine vision, artificial intelligence-enabled analytics, robots and internet of things technologies, to help the country’s farmers raise better animals at lower cost.

The company is currently working with China Agricultural University and the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences to test the smart solution on pigs although it pledges to bring the technology to more animals and “digitise traditional agriculture practices”.

The move is part of a broader strategy to expand beyond its traditional fintech business.
