I thought some of you might be interested in tuning into this seminar, tonight, from 7:30pm to 9:00pm EST.
Here are the details, with the link below: Monday March 6, 2017, 7:30pm–9:00pm Monday Night Seminar Title: Perspectives on Nocturnal Bird Migration: What we've learned from BirdCast Speaker: Dr. Andrew Farnsworth, Research Associate, Information Science, The Cornell Lab of Ornithology Description: Bird migration is a spectacular global phenomenon that has long captured the attention of human observers. But it wasn’t until the turn of the 20th century that ornithologists realized the magnitude of migration that occurred at night. Now in the early 21st century, several technologies have advanced sufficiently far to allow us to achieve new understandings of the magnitude and characteristics of nocturnal bird migration across a broad range of scales in new and different ways. The BirdCast project is a collaborative effort between ornithologists and computer scientists to further our understanding of the biology of bird migration by using state of the art machine learning and computer science techniques in combination with data collected with remote sensing methods, like radar and acoustic monitoring, to achieve these understandings. Dr. Andrew Farnsworth will speak about some of the novel insights gleaned and results produced so far from this fascinating project. This seminar is being streamed live.
