Fighting extinction with Microsoft AI and citizen science

Fighting extinction with Microsoft AI and citizen science


>>There are estimated 90,000
threatened species across the globe. To understand what puts
a species at risk, we need to know where are they born, how many survive, where do they go, how far do they go?>>At Wildbook, we are using
an algorithm to digitally tag individual animals much
like a human fingerprint. So this is a new whale
shark for science?>>Yes and we named her Wilma.>>Wilma the whale shark.>>Microsoft AI gives us the building blocks to analyze public streams
of photos and videos, and identify individual
animals in an instant. [MUSIC]. AI can determine location, date of sighting, migration patterns, and even in animals social group, and an intelligent agent can
contact the content’s owner, and ask for the missing detail. Microsoft’s AI for good initiative
gives us the technology to create a comprehensive view
of the planet’s biodiversity. In the last 10 years, we’ve identified
10 times more whale sharks than ever recorded in human history. By leveraging citizen scientists
together with researchers, we can form conservation policies. Microsoft AI will help us accelerate our work by empowering
people to take action.>>What we get back is
“wow” this is amazing! [MUSIC]

    You identified 10k new sharks because half your input data contained sharks that were photographed from the left, other half from the right. Same animal, different angle. Duplicate data.
