Advanced machine learning methods for biomonitoring (AMBI)

Project description

I will develop machine learning algorithms to conquer challenges typically encountered automated image-based identification in biomonitoring. The considered challenges are i) unbalanced occurrence of different taxa, while most interesting taxa are rare, ii) variations in imaging conditions, which may harm identification accuracy, iii) detection of rare or invasive taxa that are absent in previously collected datasets, and iv) hierarchical nature of the identification task. I will apply state-of-the-art machine learning techniques and propose improvements to them to tackle the challenges.
