A new version of the California Academy of Sciences’ http://inaturalist.org/iNaturalist app uses artificial intelligence to offer immediate identifications for photos of any kind of wildlife. You can observe anywhere and ask the computer anything. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and it seems like it mostly works. It is completely astonishing.
One iNaturalist user compared it to getting your hands on a real-life Star Trek tricorder.
iNaturalist adds an option to use artificial intelligence to provide instant nature identifications.
