Do you have camera sensor images you can share?
These cameras play an important role because they allow us to put hundreds of pairs of eyes across the landscape and find native species like dunnarts. Initial images will help train the AI platform to identify Australian fauna, led by the team at Conservation International.
In addition to the images we capture, we are calling on anyone with camera sensor images of Australian fauna, especially in the fire impacted regions, to send us their images as a means to begin this teaching process.
What kind of photos are we after?
We’re not looking for your best wildlife photography, as beautiful as the pictures may be. We’re after camera sensor images to help train Artificial Intelligence. These might be camera sensor images that are blurred, off centre, out of frame, not facing the camera and in black and white, or colour. The more camera sensor images we feed the platform, the better the technology will get at recognising the myriad and beautiful Australian wildlife.
