Wildlife Conservation: Can AI Make Poachers the Poached?

Talk at PETRAS' At The Edge series, Online Podcast
Project: Source Location Privacy for Wireless Sensor Networks

As part of my PhD I investigated approaches to reduce the usefulness of contextual information gained by an adversary monitoring a network that itself is used to monitor wildlife. In this podcast hosted by PETRASJoe Bourne, Grant Miller from ZSL and I discuss a variety of topics around wildlife protection. This included the need to consider context privacy threats in these systems and also additional uses and challenges with techniques such as machine learning.

This is part of a series of podcasts produced by PETRAS in the lead up to COP26.
