Artificial Intelligence camera developed to lessen human-wildlife conflict
A new project, jointly led by the University of Stirling and tech start-up Hack the Planet, has developed an artificial intelligence (AI) powered wildlife camera that could hugely benefit conservation by identifying real-time animal-human conflict. For instance, these smart cameras could help to detect poachers and prevent human-elephant conflicts that often take place in the African rainforest, among other places.
The technology, which can detect different animal species and humans in real time, has the potential to discover numerous conflicts between people and wildlife, as well as illegal activities in protected areas, and provide live alerts to eco-guards.
