Automated Biodiversity Monitoring

Stand DF D29 (UK Cent for Ec)

Using AI for analysing images and audio the AMI-trap can be used for autonomous monitoring of biodiversity. In this hands on demonstration, we will talk about UKCEH’s research into automated monitoring of biodiversity and demonstrate in-field equipment for monitoring moths, birds and bats using cameras and microphones. The session will first discuss the need for biodiversity on farmland and then introduce the technologies used in the AMI-trap, helping to demystify AI used in biodiversity monitoring. We open up the hardware to those interested in how these systems work and discuss the types of data collected and how they can be used, with plenty of time for questions and discussion.
