Video stream processing service

This service will allow automatic pre-processing of video streams (or regular snapshots) coming from any of the various devices that might be used in citizen science projects (e.g. mobile phones, camera-traps, personal drones, etc.). 

Similar to the ‘The platform for interactive pre-processing camera trap’ service for individual images, but adapted to video streams. It will (1) automatically filter most (if not all) unwanted images from video streams with even more importance given to data reduction than with camera traps and (2) propose the species name.

Innovation for the citizen observatories:

  • Greatly reduces the amount of data to store or filter.
  • Provides access to robust state-of-the-art processing methods, algorithms, as a starting point for further analysis, comparisons, etc.
  • Makes the entire processing of videos much easier by removing some of the algorithmic intricacies involved in cleaning up data, removing backgrounds, filtering, etc.

There is nothing similar created yet as a service line to be made available (a) for video stream processing (b) on the cloud.

We are working on this service, it will be available soon!
