AI and citizen science to reveal the secrets of seabirds

Hållbarhet & miljö
Naturvetenskap & IT

Seabirds top predators in ocean ecosystems. Coming to land to lay their eggs and raise their chicks, they can provide valuable information of the state of the ocean. Decades of field research has shown how seabirds can be valuable indicators of ocean ecosystem health. With novel research technologies - miniature tracking devices, camera surveillance, marine drones and AI - researcher have new tools to reveal seabird secrets to inform sustainable ocean management.

Jonas Hentati Sundberg is an associate senior lecturer at the Department of Aquatic Resources, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. He has performed field research on seabirds for the last 20 years. In 2008 he led the construction of the Karlsö Auk Lab – the world’s largest nest box with space for 600 pairs of breeding seabirds. The Karlsö Auk Lab facilitates the use of an increasing number of technology systems for automated seabird observations. The research is performed in collaboration with Stockholm University, WWF and AI Innovation of Sweden along with a number of technology companies.

Ocean Data Factory Sweden's webinar series

According to National Geographic, an estimated 97 % of the world’s water is found in the ocean, and as a result, the ocean has a considerable impact on the weather, temperature, and food supply of humans and other organisms. To take care of the ocean for a sustainable future, we need collaboration, learning, and the exchange of ideas across organizations and disciplines. To achieve this, Ocean Data Factory Sweden has started a webinar series, through which experts from ocean-relevant domains or data-driven innovation relevant domains share their experiences and learning and encourage knowledge sharing and innovation. 

About Ocean Data Factory Sweden

The goal of the Ocean Data Factory - Sweden (ODFSweden) is to enable Sweden to be a global leader in sustainability and data-driven innovation in the digital blue economy. ODFSweden will enable the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to many different types of marine data from Swedish to international data sources. The number of use cases for marine data-driven innovation is enormous and includes areas such as environmental monitoring and conservation, transportation and logistics, energy, food, and healthcare, to name a few.

ODF Sweden was established through Vinnova funding and is a consortium of actors from academia, research institutes, public sector, and industry. Professor Robin Teigland from Chalmers University of Tech is the Director of ODF while Torsten Linders from Univerity of Gothenburg is the Coordinator.
