一组爬行动物和两栖动物爱好者要求公众帮助训练人工智能来发现蛇、青蛙和更多的照片。该团队希望最终创建一个应用程序, 可以帮助人们在他们的后院识别这些生物-并防止人们杀死他们。但首先, 他们的 AI 必须更好地制作这些照片 id。

AI, 命名惠誉后已故, 著名的学 亨利·惠誉, 是一个新平台的一部分, 称为 什么她? 现在, 一个网页推特机器人 (@WhatTheHerp) 在那里人们可以提交给惠誉的照片尝试和识别。

“The biggest issue with conservation of herps is that we work with one of the most detested groups on the planet — you’re up there with spiders,” says programmer Don Becker (no relation), a herpetology enthusiast and member of the small team behind What the Herp and a related app, HerpMapper. “By giving people a way to identify what it is that they’re looking at, that can help dissuade people from killing it.”

Before Fitch can help people ID their backyard reptiles and amphibians, Fitch has to learn how to do so itself. So the team is training it with thousands of accurately pre-identified photos. (Doing a reverse image search on Google, Becker says, doesn’t guarantee an accurate ID.) It’s “similar to showing a child flashcards, like this is an apple, this is an orange, this is a peach,” Becker says. “Just keep showing them the pictures and eventually they recognize what everything is.”

The problem is that Fitch can be easily distracted by background details in the photo. For example, bull snakes 通常被拍在干燥的死草上, 贝克说。所以当惠誉看到一张 豹蛙 在干枯的死草中, 惠誉认为它正在看到另一条公牛蛇。"现在这不是世界上最聪明的事情," 贝克尔说。"但它的得到。

该团队正试图通过在这些照片的爬行动物或两栖星周围绘制盒子, 来去除惠誉的训练图像中那些分心的细节。这是公众的到来, 因为有数以千计的照片, 以供注解。上的 她网站, 公民科学家可以创建一个帐户和翻转照片, 以绘制框周围的生物惠誉正在学习的照片。

一旦惠誉足够训练有素, 目标是什么她?应用程序将为它分发准确的标识和有关爬行动物和两栖动物的信息。"人们杀人是因为他们害怕," 贝克尔说。"你学到的东西越多, 你就越欣赏它。
