I've recently joined WILDLABS and I'm getting to know the different groups. I hope I've selected the right ones for this discussion...
I am interested in AI to identify animals using cameras. Ideally, I want to do this on a mobile phone and eventually on an Edge Computing device.
What models are people using or are you all training your own? If you're training your own can it be done using Google Teachable Machine or is something more sophisticated required? Do you use transfer learning? (I am new to Machine Learning so please excuse my lack of knowledge).
Running before I can walk, but what boards/kits/setups do people recommend for deploying AI computer vision animal identification to the Edge? I am familiar with Arduino, but imagine there are good alternatives that might be better.
Thanks for any guidance on this! I'm happy to collaborate on such a project if anyone wants to, I just started a PhD in creative technology & design.
Many thanks, David
