How AI Can Prevent Poaching Activities

As poaching activities increase, researchers are turning to artificial intelligence (AI) to find some innovative solutions by applying game theory and computer science. Outwitting poachers in the wild can be a difficult task but thanks to a team of scientists, now there is an AI system designed to learn information and use data to help ranger patrols be the most efficient in protecting endangered species. Despite any advancement, ranger patrols remain the most direct wildlife protection against poachers. Even though many agencies are interested in offering safe habitats to wild animals, a lot of them do not have the equipment or the funds to put an end to the illegal activities. According to Fei Fang, a doctoral fellow at the University of Southern California’s (USC) computer science department, ranger patrols…
