How Advanced Technology Can Help Save Wildlife, And The Companies Behind Them
Prableen Bajpai, Nasdaq"Traditionally, analysts spend hours and hours studying thousands of images taken from satellites, drones or camera traps in the wild to decipher range, populations, and behaviors of animals otherwise rarely seen by humans. It is laborious work. This is one area where advanced technologies such as deep learning is making a difference."
