From MinuteEarth: Can AI Help Us Identify Animals?
New technology has revolutionized how we study wild animals, but it has also bogged down scientists with data…luckily, there’s an *intelligent* solution. About 250,000 views.
From Google: Wildlife Insights – Saving Biodiversity With Tech and AI
Biodiversity is in crisis. A recent UN report predicts we may see as many as 1 million species extinct, many as soon as within the decade. AI helps reduce the arduous manual work of sifting through millions of camera trap images and helps biologists spend more time actually working to study and protect wildlife. About 250,00 views.
