Abstract

The field of veterinary healthcare informatics is still in its infancy, and state of the art solutions from human healthcare are not easily adapted. IoT and wearable technologies may be bringing a wind of change, as large amounts of health data of animals are now being produced. It makes this a timely moment to initiate a discussion on the possibilities for cross-fertilization between the worlds of human and animal health informatics. In this position paper we report on an ongoing project developing a framework for automatic video-based analysis of animal behavior and describe its concrete application for decision support of behavioral veterinarians. The framework is generic, allowing for reuse across species and different analytical tasks. We further discuss the possibilities for cross-fertilization between human and animal behavior analysis in the context of health informatics.
