Environmental protection systems based on artificial intelligence.

Artificial Intelligence may be the solution to the massive loss of whale populations in our oceans.

Rainforest Connection is working in collaboration with Google and with the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans, on a project that aims to control the endangered population of Killer Whales off the coast of Canada.

Locating and monitoring the whales, determining their exact location in real time, could be the key to protecting them from shipping lanes, fishing vessels and oil leaks. All this can be achieved thanks to artificial intelligence.

The ability to determine where the cetaceans are makes it possible to change the ships' routes, thereby preventing the death of whales in fishermen's nets or due to collision. In addition, localization makes it possible to give priority to areas where waste is cleared and to generate a safe environment in the zones where they spend the most time.

All this can be achieved thanks to technology, and if it works, it could be implemented in many more areas, protecting these large mammals throughout the oceans.

The system that has been developed for this purpose, consists of a series of devices, called hydrophones, which capture the whales' vocalizations from great distances and send them to a server that in turn sends them to an artificial intelligence system.

At IoT Digital Innovation Hub we strive to facilitate collaboration between companies, so that there may be many more environmental projects implementing artificial intelligence and connected devices.
