Can rainforests be protected from illegal deforestation using artificial intelligence and machine learning? Lampoon magazine explains how in a long, in-depth article with an excellent case study
“For close to a decade now, San Francisco-based nonprofit conservation technology startup, Rainforest Connection has been capturing millions of hours of sounds from rainforests across the globe. Using cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML), the organization analyzes the audios for any threats.
