- A large scale recording is starting in the Alpes with our Italian partner (Cibra Pavia univ.), in summer 2014.
- A mission to Amazonia forest in french Guyana CNRS station is starting in september 2014.
- LifeClef Bird Challenge co-org. Sabiod is based on Crowdsourcing on bird song from all south America, 2014: 500 species, 2015: 1000 species, 2016: 2000 species (see event page). We develop crowsolving methods to tackle the state of the art on species classification, like on Kaggle interface for Bird challenge we co-organized with LifeClef lab in 2014, and with a local websource for 2015.
- My City, my Bats project This crowdsourcing project consists of installing networks ultrasonic sensors on the scale of a city and its suburbs to study the populations of bats that live with us.
100 to 200 sensors located in a town of about 300 km2 bring a revolutionary knowledge to bats experts.
All species can be detected by the device. And we aim to combine a technological challenge (network communicating autonomous sensors) a real benefit in the field of management of biodiversity at the scale of a metropolis and finally an innovative educational dimension brought on a media increasingly used by the general public: the tablet computer.
