Hunting Poachers with A.I.

The National Science Foundation has partnered with the University of Southern California and the Army Research Office to develop a new approach to stopping poachers: Artificial Intelligence.

From Nature World News :

The application, dubbed “Protection Assistant for Wildlife Security” or PAWS, uses mathematical models to effectively analyze data from previous patrols and evidence of poaching. The more data fed to the application, the more it can “learn” the topography, terrain, natural paths, foot traffic and animal traffic of the protective area.

As a result, the application can map out practical patrol routes that can minimize time, energy and resources. The application also has the ability to randomize patrol routes, making it difficult for poachers to predict any types of discernible patterns.
