Comparing males to females IoT

Can you describe what the issue is you’re experiencing?
Males are being matched with females. Is there a way to change that in the matching criteria if we have already assigned a sex? f.i have a check box (like location) to select what sex you want to match to?

Can you provide steps on how to reproduce what you’re experiencing?

Hello,

There isn’t currently functionality to do this. It’s an interesting idea, and could reduce matching set size.

We have discussed it internally for the whole platform (not just IOT) but the practicality is different for different species. Some species are difficult to determine sex for, and we may have encounters that match each other actually be assigned differently by different researchers until the individual is more closely observed.

We provide options like matching by location and viewpoint to exclude impossibilities and reduce processing time, but in general lean towards relying as much as possible on the computer vision technology instead of adding extra filters.

I’d say this is unlikely for the current platform, but I’ll bring it up for consideration on the next generation as we build the matching pipeline there and move this post to Feature Requests .
