Scientists develop a method for whale conservation using artificial intelligence

Researchers from the Universities of Granada and Almeria have created a system based on Artificial Intelligence for detecting and counting whales at sea. The application is more accurate and economical than other models used to date, and it is free of charge to all those involved in the protection of cetaceans and other at-risk species such as seals, sea lions, and penguins.
