Camera Trap Tech Symposium

Following our successful web conference series for camera trap computer vision, Rutgers University, Google Earth Outreach, Microsoft AI for Earth, and San Diego Zoo Global were honored to host a symposium for the entire camera trap community.

With an aim to address big data backlogs, species identifications, and camera trap hardware needs, presenters and attendees discussed the advancement of citizen science and the challenges of resource management, compared various software and workflows, demonstrated new equipment and wireless communication systems, and shared innovative AI models that identify both specific species and individuals.


November 7th & 8th, 2019. Google Headquarters, Mountain View, CA.
