John Craig believes an artificial intelligence (AI) computer system that incorporates and “learns” from tens of thousands of hoof photos and radiographs will improve future hoof care.
Craig is working to make it happen. He and his wife Monique Craig own and operate EponaMind, a Paso Robles, Calif.-based company focused on providing cutting-edge technology to farriers, veterinarians and horse owners.
John Craig holds a PhD in engineering from Stanford University. He has authored several papers on robotics and equine biomechanics. Monique Craig is a professional farrier with a degree in computer science engineering. Her research has been presented at veterinary and farrier conferences and in various publications. She also lectures at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in a biomechanics course for pre-veterinary students.
The Craigs have developed software they call Metron-Hoof as the foundation for their AI system. It is part of a more comprehensive AI system for veterinarians they call Metron-DVM.
