After 133 days during which 364 teams submitted 4,788 entries, our team of deep learning experts created the best performing “face recognizer” for right whales, winning by a large margin. The challenge was organized by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), co-sponsored by MathWorks and the data set of 7,000 images (4,500 for training and 2,500 for testing) was provided by the right whale research team from NOAA Fisheries and curated by the New England Aquarium. “Seeing deep learning techniques help out endangered right whales…
