Artificial intelligence is being used to save elephants

The situation of the African forest elephants is very worrying. According to the results published in 2016 by the census of Paul G. Allen's Great Elephant, in the last seven years its population has decreased by 30%, mainly due to poaching to obtain ivory for its tusks.

Those working to save this species have a new tool: artificial intelligence. Conservation Meetrics is a project promoted by Microsoft that uses machine learning to monitor the lives of these animals . Advanced algorithms are used, and with the collaboration of Cornell University, African jungle elephants' bars are distinguished from other sounds. With the data from the elephants' calls, researchers can estimate their population, monitor their movements, try to guarantee their safety and identify them individually. With machine learning , movement patterns can be detected in real time that warn of the arrival of poachers and even block online advertisements about the ivory trade.
