AI is the most burning research field today. Most of the research companies and startups are moving towards Artificial Intelligence for perfection, accurate results and less human interventions.

In order to save the oceans, Intel and Parley SnotBot setup an Advanced Drone technology at Alaska with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning tools to collect biological samples from whales and analyze data in real time. Parley SnotBot team’s marine experts completed expedition in Alaska to collect the biological samples from whale and to analyze the real time data.

The research team is using Intel’s technology to confirm pregnancy in another whale and gather real-time data on cetacean health without leaving the boat or without disturbing the whale.

With the most recent Alaska expedition, the full capacity and range of SnotBot as a transformative scientific tool is extended to include biological data, photogrammetry, volumetrics, photo ID and behavioral data.

Intel has also produced a film “Below the Surface: A Drones and AI Expedition” based on the marine research and this collaboration.

“Artificial intelligence is poised to help us solve some of our most daunting challenges by accelerating large-scale problem-solving, including unleashing new scientific discovery,” said Naveen Rao, vice president and general manager of the Artificial Intelligence Products Group at Intel Corporation. “Intel is proud to bring our expertise and technology to these research efforts and aid in the mission to better understand the health of our planet and, ultimately, humanity.”

“Parley Snotbot, a collaboration with Ocean Alliance and Intel, is a new and non-invasive research technology which allows us to explore our oceans in real time and open source data and knowledge,” said Cyrill Gutsch, Parley for the Oceans founder. “Our vision is to create a global network of digital exploration tools which generate the big data we need to identify threats with new speed and precision, so we can act on them instantly.”

Intel is organization which is behind the advanced and most amazing innovations to improve the world. Working alongside researchers to develop innovative methods to capture, process and analyze information about the environment, Intel is amplifying human capabilities and transforming the way people engage with the world.

Before this research, Intel has also worked for polar bears. Intel and wildlife photographer Ole Jørgen Liodden explore the behavior patterns of polar bears in the arctic through drone technology, providing wildlife and environmental researchers with accurate, more reliable data, captured in a safer and more efficient way.
