Hello WILDLBAS community,
For individuals newly venturing into the realm of Wildlife Conservation, especially Software Developers, Computer Vision researchers, or Data Scientists without a life science background, your insights are invaluable. Imagining a scenario where such an open-minded professional is about to join your team to contribute to your IT environment, software, and data pipeline challenges, what recommendations do you have?
What would be the initial steps for someone eager to learn and apply their IT expertise to the world of wildlife conservation / research? Are there specific scientific papers, media articles, or reports that you highly recommend for gaining insights into the achievements, role, future, and trends of technology in Wildlife Conservation?
Additionally, are there notable resources similar to @dmorris Everything I know about ML and camera traps that you believe should be highlighted here?
Thank you for your response.
