About the Summer Workshop on Computer Vision Methods for Ecology (CV4Ecology)
A three-week intensive summer program teaching Computer Vision Methods for Ecology, seeking to empower ecologists to analyze large image, audio, or video datasets using computer vision accurately and efficiently.
The first RSI-supported Summer Workshop on Computer Vision Methods for Ecology was held at Caltech on August 1-20, 2022. CV4Ecology was a full-immersion workshop, composed of classroom training, guest lectures, field trips, discussions, and hands-on projects with one-on-one mentorship. The participants learned the basics of computer vision and how to train and evaluate computer vision models on their own data to help answer specific ecological research questions. At the end of the workshop, participants left with new working tools and a good grasp of the underlying concepts that will empower them to tackle a diverse set of ecological problems with computer vision. CV4Ecology participants also developed a network of computer vision researchers with whom they can engage and collaborate.
