We aspire to a world where marine mammals’ welfare is constantly monitored and guaranteed, given any circumstances, provided by the right data-driven solutions.
Development of Automated detection or localization tools
These tools can be used for tracking, supervision or research of a species or an individual in interest and are the baseline for further practical conservation methods. For species with local rare appearance for example, this ability alone creates value.
Population estimation tool and operative implications
By assessing the local population in time and place using the automated detection tools baseline, an operative research for determining shipping lanes and regulating fishing zones is conducted.
The research findings is then transferred to the local authorities. In practice, such regulations are the key to provide deaths and injuries, as fishing net entanglements and ship collisions are the two major reasons for cetacean’s population decline worldwide.
Development of local algorithms using lean research for worldwide spread
The global status of PAM utilization is such that in only certain parts of the world it is implemented. This is because PAM applications require knowledge and funding- two rare resources on a global scale.
Deep Voice works with relatively inexpensive acoustic monitoring tools ( hence “lean research”) and believes in free sharing and teaching the knowledge globally. Therefore, the work on local populations is just the baseline for the developed PAM applications to be spread worldwide by the NGO. Accessing these lean-research applications to other biologists group worldwide who lack the capabilities is the key for a better global conservation
Deep Voice is collecting visual and acoustic data for linguistic-cognitive research analysis to be shared with other research groups worldwide.
Goals and Future Plans
Near Future plans
Scale our algorithms usage and expand our map of impact.
Contribute to at least five more conservation groups with detection\ classification services.
Make localization and data-analysis algorithms accessible to biologists worldwide.
Assist in the development of marine mammals’ anti-collision technology.
Establish an online community of researchers that use AI-based solutions for conservation.
Find new strategic partnerships.
Five Years from now
Deep Voice map of impact spreads all over the globe.
A worldwide network of bio-acousticians that follow a data-based paradigm of conservation is founded.
An end-to-end density estimation framework is provided by Deep Voice to research groups worldwide. This framework supports data-based regulations monitoring marine mammals’ welfare worldwide.
A clear measure of marine mammals’ conservation success exists and is quantified.
