Intel Wants To Use AI To Stop Poaching

Using a new technology, dubbed TrailGuard AI, Intel and their partners on the ground in Tanzania hope to stop poachers before they can kill. TrailGuard is a low cost and durable camera system that can give rangers eyes on poachers as they move into the park. Using camera traps isn't new, it just wasn't especially cost effective. It required humans to scan through hours and hours of footage, most of which had nothing of value for rangers. Intel's AI will scan the footage itself and surface only meaningful threats so that the already limited rangers can be informed efficiently.
