Whale Seeker uses deep learning to offer rapid marine mammal detection tools, advanced image analysis, and data management solutions.

Context

ACF Type: textarea

Visual whale detection is mostly done using human eyes only, which is expensive, imprecise, and slow. Governments have no comprehensive tools to successfully manage whale conservation and marine traffic, and months or years can go by before the data is analyzed and action is taken. Whale Seeker’s automated method detects marine mammals from aerial images using AI. Real-time data allows faster management decisions and maximum protection to whales by immediate avoidance action.
