Half a Million Chimp Videos Analysed

 

Chimp&See reached yet another milestone recently. The project reached 3.5 million classifications and now the volunteers have completely annotated over 500,000 video clips!

This huge effort has helped the science team get through 2,200 hours of footage, annotate all animals and behaviors seen in a video clip, tag to the species level, and identify almost 300 unique chimpanzees (and some leopards) across all sites. Just watching the video footage alone would have taken an individual researcher (working full time) over a year to do!

There is still work left to do before the project is complete. Get involved now at www.chimpandsee.org.
