AI for Wildlife

#AI can now fight wildlife crime

Illegal wildlife trafficking, worth $23 billion per year, is the fourth largest illegal trade in the world. #Microsoft AI can now automatically detect illegally trafficked wildlife concealed within luggage and cargo.

Project SEEKER technology, a Microsoft AI for Good project, can be use alongside existing airport screening and security infrastructure.
The models have been trained on real items seized by United Kingdom border officers. And since its built on Microsoft’s global #Azure cloud platform, that data can be analyzed to build a comprehensive and detailed picture of illegal wildlife trafficking across the world. 

At a recent trial at London Heathrow airport, Microsoft’s Project SEEKER detected illegal wildlife items concealed in baggage and cargo.
