IBEIS is an autonomous computational system that starts with a database of photographs (including video frames) contributed by field scientists, tourists, citizen scientists, camera traps and autonomous vehicles. Designed to identify a range of species, it is also able to identify individual animals by stripes, spots, wrinkles and notches. Like fingerprints, these patterns are unique to each individual. IBEIS can find matches within the database: Once an animal has been identified, it can be tracked in other photographs. This is body recognition on a massive scale.
