Logic, Code and Monkeys

With increasing human populations, our wild animals are at ever-increasing risk of extinction. If we don’t know what we have, then how can we protect them?
Decreasing costs of trail cameras have resulted in increasing numbers of camera trap surveys of uninhabited spaces to determine what and where the animals are. Trail cameras, just like smartphones, are producing large numbers of photos which are time-consuming to process and analyse. Add to that the risk of mistakes made when setting these cameras out, and the delay in producing survey reports can mean that animals are already extinct by the time they are reported on.
My team developed new software to assist ecologists and field scientists to quickly process these images.
How does this relate to education? Listen and find out….
