TDAI faculty director Dr. Tanya Berger-Wolf will kick off the University of Bristol’s AI & Nature Week Feb. 27 as a featured speaker at the forefront of the field of computational ecology. Berger-Wolf, who is professor of computer science and engineering; electrical and computer engineering; and evolution, ecology and organismal biology, will speak on “Partnership for Conservation: AI and Human Combatting Extinction Together.”

AI & Nature Week, which runs Feb. 27-March 2, explores “the interface between artificial intelligence (AI) and applications that benefit nature, science, and life” where Berger-Wolf’s research focuses. One of the founders of the fields of computational ecology and now imageomics, she leads projects creating computational solutions to generate, collect, analyze and derive insight from data to answer questions and make decisions in ecology, environment and wildlife conservation. She is director and co-founder of the AI for conservation software non-profit Wild Me, home of the Wildbook project, which was recently chosen by UNSECO as one of the top AI 100 projects worldwide supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
