Specifically, the 2021 edition of LifeCLEF includes four challenges:
- PlantCLEF: cross-domain plant identification based on herbarium sheets,
- BirdCLEF: bird species recognition in audio soundscapes.
- GeoLifeCLEF: location-based prediction of species based on environmental and occurrence data.
- SnakeCLEF: image-based snake identification.
What are the main objectives?
Each participant will develop their own method/algorithm to solve the targeted task. Once ready, the organizers will conduct a comparative study of the developed methods thanks to a standard evaluation dataset; this way, participants will evaluate their technology by comparing it to the state-of-the-art.
The challenges’ results will be published in technical reports and scientific articles and presented at the Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR), among other things.
