Monday Night Seminar

Title: Perspectives on Nocturnal Bird Migration: What we've learned from 

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
