AI identifies jungle noises

A study conducted by researchers from Germany, Ecuador, and America has demonstrated the effectiveness of using artificial intelligence to analyze the sounds of birds in tropical forests. By allowing AI to listen, it was possible to accurately determine the stages of species composition in different stages of forest development.

The AI technology was able to measure the regeneration of Ecuadorian tropical forests after agricultural use ceased, providing valuable insights into the health of these ecosystems. The technology was able to recognize the sounds of local bird species and classify them accurately, even though it could only identify a fraction of the species identified by experts.

The study involved forests ranging from pasture land and cocoa plantations to old primeval forests. The assessment made by the artificial intelligence aligned with that of experts who listened to the sounds of birds, amphibians, mammals, and nocturnal insect species.

The results suggest that using listening AI as a cost-effective monitoring method could be beneficial in global efforts to monitor tropical forest regeneration. This approach could ensure not only carbon sinks but also biodiversity-rich environments in various parts of the world.

Overall, this study highlights the potential for AI technology to play a vital role in understanding and protecting our natural resources.
