Content Creator are losing biodiversity at an unprecedented scale and rate, faster than we are able to measure the loss, let alone combat it. These are daunting challenges, which require every tool available to humans. Dr. Tanya Berger-Wolf discusses how Artificial Intelligence (AI), the ultimate bio-hack, can help slow the destruction and even reverse the damage. AI not only makes it possible to quickly scale conservation solutions, but in ways that can be remarkably personal, enabling each and every one of to make a difference. Dr. Tanya Berger-Wolf is a Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology at the Ohio State University, where she is also the Director of the Translational Data Analytics Institute. As a computational ecologist, her research is at the unique intersection of computer science, wildlife biology, and social sciences. She creates computational solutions to address questions such as how environmental factors affect the behavior of social animals (humans included). Tanya is also a director and co-founder of the AI for conservation software non-profit Wild, home of the Wildbook project, which brings together computer vision, crowdsourcing, and conservation. Wildbook has been featured in media, including The New York Times, CNN, and National Geographic. Tanya thanks the co-founders of Wildbook whose StripeSpotter class project started this wild journey. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
