How AI Can Help Humans Save the Planets Biodiversity

by TED I10:47 am, 6th October

AI not only makes it possible to quickly scale conservation solutions, but in ways that can be remarkably personal, enabling each and every one of us to make a difference. Dr. Tanya Berger-Wolf is a Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology at the Ohio State University, where she is also the Director of the Translational Data Analytics Institute. As a computational ecologist, her research is at the unique intersection of computer science, wildlife biology, and social sciences. She creates computational solutions to address questions such as how environmental factors affect the behavior of social animals (humans included). Tanya is also a director and co-founder of the AI for conservation software non-profit Wild Me, home of the Wildbook project, which brings together computer vision, crowdsourcing, and conservation. Wildbook has been featured in media, including The New York Times, CNN, and National Geographic. Tanya thanks the co-founders of Wildbook whose StripeSpotter class project started this wild journey. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
