Hi IoT users!
MiewID is much faster than Hotspotter, so you can see your match results sooner. Early versions of this model featuring only four species have been running on the African Carnivore Wildbook (ACW) and are already achieving more than a 10X improvement in ID job processing per day and even finding subtler matches missed by older algorithms.
We hope replace Hotspotter in IoT with MiewID, but we need your help in order to train the algorithm.
We’re looking for image sets of known individuals that you’ve reviewed with confidence, preferably individuals with 4 annotations (left and right head, left and right body) for the best results. The best way to do this is to provide us the URL to an IoT Individual Search that includes 100 or more individuals where that search result is filtered to data you believe has been curated accurately.
It is important to note that this advanced, multispecies AI can only be achieved through collaboration, and the field work of many different researchers contributed to improved accuracy and performance for all. Thank you to the many teams that directly or indirectly contributed to this new achievement in AI!
