Wildlife Image Classification with Machine Learning
Since 2018 we’ve been working with Gabon’s National Park Agency to lead a large-scale biodiversity monitoring program that uses 200 camera traps to survey the mammal population in Lopé and Waka National Parks (comprising 7000 km2 of a continuous forest).
This project aims to build capacity for long-term, scientifically rigorous biodiversity monitoring in both national parks and within the National Parks Agency as a whole. On this project, we are building a fully open-source multi-platform solution for wildlife image classification. The project is directly tied to our AI For Good initiative.
