In conjunction with Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition 2023

June 18, 2023 full day, Room 'East 4'

Community - Stay Connected

CV4Animals Slack channel. Sara Beery runs the AI for Conservation slack, to provide a shared, interdisciplinary space for researchers who work across the fields of computer vision, machine learning, and AI for conservation and sustainability. We launched the CV4Animals channel to better connect our subcommunity. The entire community is over 1000 strong, with researchers from all over the globe. If you'd like to join us, just email

About (2023)

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.
