Australian researchers will test a device “Facial recognition“Colas to better understand and protect this species,” Griffith University announced Thursday.
Griffith University researchers want to use artificial intelligence to recognize every marsupial that uses wildlife columns in the state of Queensland (northeast). Underpasses and bridges have been built to provide a safe lane away from cars on busy roads near Kola habitats.
Professor Jun Joo, who is leading the pilot study, believes that artificial intelligence no longer needs to control the cameras to find out which species use these eco-pipelines. “Now, as artificial intelligence has been growing at full speed for the past decade, technology is sufficient to recognize not only colas, but every individual of that organism that uses these passages. “, He believes.
It is important to have a good understanding of how these data colas use wildlife intersections and whether wildlife intersections can help prevent collisions with vehicles. The government-funded project will allow the installation of twenty cameras near Brisbane in July. The population of koalas, victims of climate change, habitat loss, dog attacks, car accidents and diseases are in dramatic decline.
The massive wildfires that devastated the massive island-continent in 2019 and 2020 helped greatly to accelerate this phenomenon.
