Red kites writing their own blogs - Find out how!

Advaith Siddharthan, Wednesday 27 February 2019 | Annotate


Our latest Blogging birds paper has just been published in the Communications of the ACM. Blogging birds is a novel artificial intelligence program that generates creative texts to communicate telemetric data derived from satellite tags fitted to red kites — a medium-size bird of prey — as part of a species reintroduction program in the U.K. We address the challenge of communicating telemetric sensor data in real time by enriching it with meteorological and cartographic data, codifying ecological knowledge to allow creative interpretation of the behavior of individual birds in respect to such enriched data, and dynamically generating informative and engaging data-driven blogs aimed at the general public. To find out more, read the paper below or watch the video above...
