At the University of Greifswald the project DIG-IT! started in July 2019: ‘Digitization of natural complexity for the solution of problems that are relevant to our society’. In this project the ever increasing amount of ecological data will be analyzed with machine learning methods. In particular large amounts of images can be aggregated quickly, for example from microscopy, wildlife camera-traps, optical scans or aerial photography. DIG-IT! is led by Prof. Martin Wilmking at the University of Greifswald. The participating working groups are from the Institute for Botany and Landscape Ecology, the Zoological Institute and Museum, the Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science, as well as the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD in Rostock. The project is funded with two million euro from the excellency program ‘Digitization of Research’ of the federal state Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
