Overview

Microsoft’s AI for Earth program develops tools at the intersection of machine learning and environmental science, through both external grants and first-party development. This demo will showcase our work on using computer vision to break the “annotation logjam” facing ecologists, who collectively spend millions of hours and millions of dollars each year annotating images to estimate wildlife populations.
