In India, artificial intelligence (AI) enabled cameras are being used to proactively monitor tiger populations and their habitats in real-time. The use of AI-enabled cameras could prove to be a useful tool in conserving India’s wild tigers and their natural environment as poaching, habitat destruction, and other issues have put them on the endangered species list.
The Indian government is collaborating with a conservation organization called World Wildlife Federation in order to install the AI-enabled cameras throughout the country. The aim is to help monitor and document tiger movements in order to be able to track how tigers are moving between different habitats, allowing conservationists to be proactive and intervene if necessary. Using the cameras, conservationists will also be able to instantly alert local authorities in the event that an endangered tiger is in danger or at risk of being poached.
The AI-enabled cameras are being used to detect and record tiger movement in real-time by using cutting-edge facial recognition technology. This technology gives conservationists an unprecedented level of insight into tiger behavior and helps them better identify and track individual tigers. The AI-enabled cameras also come equipped with high-resolution thermal imaging capabilities, which allow the cameras to detect minute temperature variance within a scene.
Using AI-enabled cameras alongside other means of monitoring and conserving India’s wild tiger population is a powerful way to help protect one of the most valuable species found in the world. The cameras will help conservationists efficiently detect, monitor and track tigers, allowing the authorities to respond more quickly and effectively to potential threats. Furthermore, using AI-enabled cameras will allow authorities to track different tiger behaviors in different habitats, which can help conservationists gain a better understanding of tiger behavior and foster a better appreciation of the species in the surrounding communities.
