Raise awareness about ecosystems using AI and AR technologies to make the natural environment more sustainable.
Record data before they are lost and conserve them.
According to WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature), the number of individual vertebrates has dropped by 58 percent from 1970 to 2012, and it will further drop by 67 percent on average by 2020. This means that, at the current rate, a third of all species on this planet, and in some taxa like the amphibians half of the species, are feared to go extinct by the end of this century. There may not be many things that individuals, enterprises, or even governments can do to solve this global issue. Yet, we believe that grasping the current situation will help change the world, leading to improvements in areas where improvements can be measured. As the first step toward finding a sustainable path into the future, we are building an AI-based system for instantly recognizing all animal and plant species in the world and a mobile AR-based system that helps people understand the world correctly.
An app that instantly recognizes all animal and plant species in the world, helping all users to interpret the richness of the world like experts.
A video analysis system for automatically monitoring animal health, breeding, and population at a low cost.
