Guillemot hackathon

This summer, 100s of hours of video footage of breeding guillemots were collected at the colony of Stora Karlsö in the Baltic Sea. These videos contain a massive amount of information on around-the-clock attendance patterns, social interactions and breeding success - but extracting all this information requires a lot of effort. To make this a bit easier, the Baltic Seabird Project is teaming up with AI Innovation of Sweden to arrange a hackathon to tackle the following challenges:

  • Video recognition of adult individuals, eggs, and chicks. Behaviour classification from individual movements, etc.
  • Improved UX for citizen science, feedback, and rewards
  • Open application task building on result from task 1 and data from SMHI and Space Data Lab

While the event takes place in Gothenburg, it is possible to participate from anywhere in the world!

Here are the relevant dates:
Deadline for team (2-5 ppl) application: November 7, 2019
Webinars and walk-through: November 8, 2019
Pitch your team idea November 15, 2019
Hackathon: November 21-22, 2019
