CV4Animals: Computer Vision for Animal Behavior Tracking and Modeling

In conjunction with Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition 2022

June 20, 2022 full day, Room 217

About (2022)

Many biological organisms have evolved to exhibit diverse behaviors, and understanding these behaviors is a fundamental goal of multiple disciplines including neuroscience, biology, animal husbandry, ecology, and animal conservation. These analyses require objective, repeatable, and scalable measurements of animal behaviors that are not possible with existing methodologies that leverage manual encoding from animal experts and specialists. Computer vision is having an impact across multiple disciplines by providing new tools for the detection, tracking, and analysis of animal behavior. This workshop brings together experts across fields to stimulate this new field of computer-vision-based animal behavioral understanding.
