Bird Acoustic Solution 

Hello Folks, I work with the Dept of Conservation, New Zealand (NZ) government. We are eagerly looking for a Machine learning or AI solution to identify the NZ birds (and other species in future). Department has historical audio/acoustic recordings gathered by our rangers; we want a solution to scan these acoustic files to identify the birds. This solution is essential for us, and the department is willing to invest a reasonable amount in enhancing/developing the existing/premature solution, which can also be made available to other conservation groups in NZ. Government has a target of predator-free NZ by 2050, and this solution and similar others in future will help us reach that target. 

I am new to Wildlabs.net and have seen some cool and advanced technologies used in conservation space I am extremely excited to implement them into our organization. I shared some of these capabilities in our organization, and there was an interest and curiosity. In that direction, I have been asked if we could find a solution to our audio/acoustic files.  

Please let me know if you have a solution to this problem and are willing to collaborate to take the solution to the next level. My email id is [email protected]; feel free to email or message me for discussion. 

Thank you so much.
