First Nations harness power of AI to monitor wild salmon stocks in B.C.

AI technology called "Salmon Vision" has been developed to accurately count and differentiate species of salmon in British Columbia (B.C.) waterways. The technology uses computer vision deep learning models to analyze video footage of salmon and provide accurate fish counts. A pilot study showed that the AI technology was about 90 percent accurate in detecting coho and 80 percent accurate for sockeye after reviewing over 500,000 video frames. This technology has the potential to provide real-time information on salmon numbers, helping guide fishing decisions and improve salmon conservation efforts. The project was funded through the British Columbia Salmon Restoration and Innovation Fund. Source:
