As few as one-in-1000 sea turtle hatchlings survive the perilous journey from nest to ocean.A world-first artificial intelligence system has been developed to analyse thousands of photographs of remote beaches to identify evidence of turtle nests and their predators.A collaboration by the CSIRO, Aak Puul Ngantam (APN) of the Cape York Indigenous rangers and Microsoft, the cloud-based system is trying to boost the survival rates of turtle hatchlings in Australia's remote far north.https://thewest.com.au/technology/ai-used-to-protect-qld-turtle-habitats-ng-s-2050072
There’s been research to date on kinetic energy, using human gait as an identity fingerprint and others for new battery like contraptions and more. As a side note, this Editor hopes we skip the Matrix phase above!The latest US researchers are trying to find ways for our human body heat and energy to power wearable devices. If they succeed, what environmental & sustainable benefits could we see? No more pesky 6month battery lives? If our energy and movement could be distinct, perhaps it is a bio marker for identity and more? https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2021/02/12/wearable-tech-using-body-battery-created-colo-researchers/6735709002/image credit: The Matrix movie
We've seen in the last few years how 'viral' theories and conspiracies have swirled in social media and our communities to appear truthful (2016: Pizzagate?).
Can AI help us verify the narrative and complex constructions and connections?

Could this be an early warning system of social unrest/ disruption centred in misinformation & distrust?
