Preventing Extinction Using Artificial Intelligence and Citizen Science

Wild Me is introducing an innovative program where citizen science and high technology are combined to fight the extinction of wildlife. Microsoft AI is the technology that uses the algorithm to distinguish the pattern of an animal’s physical appearance, for instance, skin pattern and scars. This program would not be completed without the help of citizen science and researchers who actively seek the existence of the living creatures and record them. For example, the data shows that Wild Me succeeded in identifying 10 times more whale sharks than ever recorded.
