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.
