Using Technology to Save Lions in Africa
Tuesday, April 30, 2019
On April 30 at 7 pm, join us for a presentation by anthro-engineer Justin Downs about the use of GPS, facial recognition, and other AI based technologies to help manage and conserve lions in Africa! Downs will explain - in plane English! - how the Lion Identification Network of Collaborators (LINC), an open source platform he co-created - is used by conservationists, researchers, and government wildlife management. Come for the lion pictures and stay for the tech talk!
