Talk Title
Eco-Acoustics: Monitoring biodiversity using the sounds of nature

Talk Summary
This talk will introduce you to the world of eco-acoustic monitoring – using the sounds of nature to track biodiversity across space and time. We will see how autonomous sensing strategies and AI powered analyses are transforming the scale and resolution with which we can track biodiversity across the world. We will explore the key outstanding challenges facing the field, and where the most promising applications of the technology may lie in the future.
