  • UIC computer scientist Tanya Berger-Wolf is featured in a video for the Microsoft AI for Good initiative. Berger-Wolf talks about her crowdsourcing, population analysis software, Wildbook. The platform uses data from photographs of animals taken by tourists, scientists and camera traps and uses advanced deep learning and computer vision to identify individual animals based on coat pattern or other unique features. Wildbook has helped determine the most accurate sizes of global populations of the endangered Grevy’s zebra and whale shark.
