How can computers learn to recognize birds from sounds? The BirdNET research project uses artificial intelligence and neural networks to train computers to identify more than 3,000 of the most common species worldwide. You can record a file using the microphone of your Android device and see if BirdNET correctly identifies the probable bird species present in your recording. Get to know the birds around you and help us to collect observations by submitting your recordings.
BirdNET is a joint project of the K. Lisa Yang Center for Conservation Bioacoustics at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and Chemnitz University of Technology.
As part of the Erasmus KA 229 TILT, on Climate Change, an outdoor activity has been carried out: Bird watching and birdringing.
The app BirdNET can currently identify around 3,000 of the world’s most common species. We will add more species in the near future.
