Workshop IV: Pollinator monitoring

This workshop is part of a series of online meetings to share experiences around the globe using automated technology (Cameras + AI) to monitor moths and other nocturnal insects.

Online Event
10 Nov 2022 - this event is in the past.
3:00 pm ~ 5:00 pm UTC
 Recording Available

Fourth workshop on pollinator monitoring as part of the EASY-RIDER project.

In this 2 hour-session we will hear from three teams who will be presenting their work in designing automated monitoring tools for flower-visiting insects, different ways for creating datasets for training machine learning algorithms for insect identification and how these new technologies can be integrated in traditional monitoring schemes. We will follow the talks with a discussion session focused on opportunities to leverage machine learning to enhance the monitoring projects discussed in previous sessions, challenges involved in integrating machine learning tools and ways to increase interdisciplinary collaboration.

In reply to Valentin_Stefan

This sounds amazing and I advertised it among my colleagues. Unfortunately, most probably I will not be able to attend, however, would be nice if you can provide the recording after.

Hi Valentin, thank you! Sorry you can't attend. But no worries I will add the recording from the event afterwards.
