New paper on automatic object recoginition including orangutan nests from ConservationDrone photos

The ConservationDrones that Lian Pin and I have been flying in Sumatra have been taking a large number of photos of the forest in our search for orang-utan nests. Manually checking photos to find nests is a time-consuming task. By collaborating with a team from the ETH in Zurich we are now able to detect nests with the aid of object recognition. Check the current paper for more details.
