Neurala Partners With Lindbergh Foundation To Use Drones To Combat Poaching

Neural network software firm Neurala has announced it has partnered with the Lindbergh Foundation in an effort to combat elephant poaching in Africa using intelligent drones and artificial intelligence (AI).

According to the Lindbergh Foundation, over 100,000 elephants were killed throughout Africa between 2010 and the end of 2012, and 40,000 more in 2013.
-------------------------------
Across the entire continent, a rhino is slaughtered every 9-11 hours and every 14 minutes an elephant is killed for its tusks; at that rate, the foundation predicts African elephants will be extinct within 10 years.

In response, the foundation launched its non-profit Air Shepherd program to protect elephants and rhinos from the illegal poaching activities by spotting the bad guys from the air before they even reach the harmless victims.





I hope this program is successful. The unnecessary killing of these animals needs to stop.
