AI for Anti-Poaching Mobile App
Wild Me is proud to provide the machine learning models behind the new Fin Finder mobile app (iOS and Android), which is the worlds first AI-based mobile application for shark and ray fin identification to combat the illegal wildlife trade. We look forward to continuing to evolve the model coverage for this app, which currently can predict 35 different shark and ray species. The Fin Finder project is led by Conservation International, and you can learn more about Fin Finder here.
Over 15,000 shark fin photos were used to create the Fin Finder machine learning models.
New Science Emerging
Wildbook continues to support some great emerging science. New publications using Wildbook data include:
Our first Codex is replacing our first Wildbook! We're excited to announce the launch this week of Zebra Codex, which replaces the Wildbook for Zebras as our portal to support multi-species zebra research in Africa. Users will start using https://zebra.wildme.org (new domain name) shortly when data migration completes.
Wild Me builds open software and artificial intelligence for the conservation research community. We are machine learning experts and software professionals supporting you in the fight against extinction.
