Intelligent Disease Diagnosis System for Livestock in Rural Pakistan

The project will be confined to four types of cattle commonly owned in rural areas: cows, buffaloes, goats and sheep. The product will be capable at running as a stand-alone application on computers as well as Android based mobile phones, where the user will enter symptoms through an easy to use localized interface and the system will predict the possible disease(s).
