This month we’re releasing a few major updates that allow you to customize the way you work and speed up the data processing workflow even more. Here’s what’s new:
AI model release: The latest version of the Wildlife Insights AI model is now available! The training data now includes over 12 million images and 886 species (+166 higher taxonomic classes and non-animal classes). Check out the species table to learn more about the performance of the newest model.
New Bursts interface: Many of you asked for a more efficient way to tag images within bursts. Our design and user research team worked with a few beta testers to test and refine a new concept that provides more flexibility, transparency and the ability to quickly review images within a burst. Here are some highlights:
View images as small, medium or large thumbnails;
Review CV predictions at a glance, with ID tokens displayed on every image;
Use bulk selections to edit IDs for subsets of images.
Make “Count” optional: We’ve made the “Count” field optional for projects that don’t record the count of animals in images. If you enable this setting, the “Count” field will not be displayed and you will not be required to enter a count to save an ID.
Thanks for your support of Wildlife Insights!
Great question. The model that was just released incorporates data from legacy projects and fully catalogued projects uploaded before April. Since this retraining began before the public release of Wildlife Insights, it may not have included data from your project.
As you may have read in other posts, our team is aiming to retrain the model on a regular basis and I'll use this forum to let users know when a model retraining is coming up. If you need to move forward uploading your data, our new features including Bursts should make it much faster to review and correct IDs.
Thanks in advance for your patience!
