 Artificial intelligence can help identify individual facial features and analyze wild chimpanzees


Xinhua News Agency, Tokyo, September 9 (Reporter Hua Yi) - A team of researchers at Kyoto University in Japan recently used artificial intelligence technology to successfully identify individual facial features from videos of wild chimpanzee populations. This study is helpful to understand and analyze the social network of wild chimpanzee population and its changes.

Using video recordings of wild chimpanzees in West Africa, the team analyzed about 10 million facial images of 23 wild chimpanzees in Guinean forests using a deep learning technology called CNN developed by Oxford University. The results showed that the success rate of face recognition and sex recognition of wild chimpanzees was 92.5% and 96.2% respectively. Based on this, the team successfully explained the 14-year-long changes in the social structure of wild chimpanzees, and also analyzed the social networks of wild chimpanzee groups, such as the relationship between individuals. The team said the study provided a new method of field research and analysis, as well as new insights into the social changes of wild chimpanzees. The research results have been published in the online edition of the American Journal of Progress in Science. Source: responsible editor of Xinhua News Agency: Wang Fengzhi_NT2541
