Applying deep learning technology to bird image identification

Can you tell these swifts apart? Chances are that if you are not an avid birdwatcher you may not be able to tell that they are different species, let alone name them. Well, I am training my bird identification app Twigle to do just that!

In my early stage testing of the image recognition technology that I am incorporating into Twigle, it correctly identifies the first one is a common swift and the second one is an African black swift.

Stay tuned for updates on this great feature as we apply deep learning image classifiers to solve your bird identification needs. This will complement the audio recognition feature that is already in Twigle.
