Thank you VERY much for that, Carly. I really appreciate it. I have only heard of the bear research project and was not aware of the others. This is very helpful.
FYI: Most studies I am aware of use ML with facial recognition software. I am interested to find out if there are recognition... (read more)
Starting a thread here so there's a place to share upcoming talks, webinars, workshops and other events that are related to AI for conservation.
If you are hosting or see an event that this group should know about, please post below. After an event, please update... (read more)
Dear all Wildlabs members,
If you are a biologist, scientist, researcher or conservationist, please help us fill out the survey or connect us to both institutions that you know or your friends and colleagues for our research “Science and technology application for Wildlife Conservation... (read more)
Steph, thank you so much for this, this is wonderful :) Really, really apreciate you sharing this with me :) Diving into all of the wonderful resources from you, thank you so very much for this!

Thanks Drue for your valuable input.
This is certainly not to encourage killing venomouse snakes. We can actually incorporate the featurs you pointed out to save venomouse snakes as well. Ideally we can let the user know how to deal with a venomouse snake and whome to contact if he/she... (read more)
Adding my 2 cents here... and I'm being generous with the value of my comment, maybe just 1 cent... AI should be able to help a lot with the recognition tasks. Edge Computing AI, done in the camera module might have to be custom developed for the application, but if you have the AI folks... (read more)
Hi everyone! If of interest, KDD2019 will be hosting a workshop on Data Mining and AI for Conservation and have opened a call for papers.
The workshop will be held on August 5th, and per their description:
This workshop will focus on how data mining and AI can inform... (read more)
Artificial intelligence & Machine Learning Algorithms are transforming data analysis, but little is known about how they can support conservation practices and outcomes. A game-changer?
The explosion of machine learning (ML) methods across all areas of... (read more)
Great article, thank you! I mostly work with responsible AI in other contexts, at Doteveryone.org.uk and the Trust & Technology Initiative at the University of Cambridge, so don't have much to offer here, although I am very interested in the topic. I appreciate your... (read more)
I am doing the almost same thing, since here we have a problem between elephant and human living in the same area and conflict a lot. We would like to warn people when elephants are approching by camera trap's detection of elephants.
How is your work now? Maybe we... (read more)
Fair point, it isn't a peer reviewed article as yet. I had a poke around out of curiosity and wasn't able to track down a fully published paper yet (thought it's been a while since this preprint was released...). On reading, were there any issues that stood out to you that others should be aware... (read more)
Yes - good points in there about why traditional attempts at these attempts have hit a ceiling - we have some great approaches to that - will have some prototypes to share very soon, but happy to tell people about these ideas if interested. (read more)
