The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is a US agency in charge of protecting oceanic wildlife. It needed a system to automate the recognition of Right Whales from aerial photographs.
Tracking the individual Right whales was necessary to protect the endangered species, track migration routes and count the the whales in a herd.
Whale identification had always been done manually, with skilled employees comparing photos with a catalogue, a process that took up to three hours. deepsense.ai’s solution reduced the time to three minutes.Further reading
I am so impressed with the results the folks at deepsense.ai were able to achieve. The task of identifying individual whales from photographs is no easy feat and their CNN approach was able to achieve 87% correct classification!
