New Paper: Using Artificial Intelligence to optimise video sampling for juvenile fish surveys
Updated: Sep 23, 2020
The increasing sophistication and availability of Remote Underwater Video Techniques (RUVs), such as remotely operated underwater vehicles and underwater video, are helping researchers overcome the limitations that traditional sampling methods place on acquiring key fisheries parameters, especially in regard to juveniles. RUVs, however, come with their own sets of limitations. In our new paper we evaluate the strengths and limitations of RUVs and investigate how these restrictions can be overcome through the use of Artificial Intelligence, such as Deep Learning.
Is this the future of underwater video sampling?
