Sophisticated Training Data Leads to AI Program that Spots Wildlife Poachers

Researchers at USC’s Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society have long been applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) to protect wildlife. Now, with the help of sophisticated training data, they have applied a breakthrough technology that will make a difference.

Initially, computer scientists were using AI and game theory to anticipate the poachers' hunts. The use of applied artificial intelligence and deep learning results in poachers being spotted in near real-time. Now, infrared cameras can distinguish between poachers and animals, since both give off heat.
