Conserving biodiversity with AI

By The Good AI

ONLINE

In the fight against human destruction of nature, AI models have turned into an unlikely ally, helping save our biodiversity, paradoxically from our own hands. Indeed, AI can play a vital role in detecting, recognizing and keeping track of endangered animals wandering into their natural environment or conserved into wildlife sanctuaries. Furthermore, scientists are developing AI-driven methods to aid protect natural habitats and enabling a new level of real-time awareness. It is time to act. Our planet is in the midst of its sixth mass extinction, the worst one since dinosaurs roamed the earth, 65 million years ago. Every 14 minutes, an elephant is killed in Africa, while a Rhino is slaughtered every 11 hours. Moreover, 80% of the world's forests have been destroyed or irreparably degraded. The responsibility for this crisis lies with us, humans. It is because of countless direct and indirect human actions, such as poaching, overpopulation, habitat destruction and climate change, that our planet’s rich biodiversity is taking such a huge hit. During this talk, our guests will discuss how AI fosters and accelerates the conservation of our biodiversity, and the challenges that come with it.
