Using AI To Track Birds Migrating At Night

Using AI To Track Birds Migrating At Night

By Brooks Hays

It’s difficult to track birds flying across the sky in the dark of night, but every fall and spring, millions of birds migrate through the night. Weather radar can offer a spotty view of the phenomenon, but to track nighttime migrations with greater accuracy and reliability, a group of researchers turned to artificial intelligence.

Scientists designed a machine-learning algorithm to analyze weather radar images and differentiate migrating birds from precipitation. The algorithm replicates the power of neural networks to analyze and classify radar images.

Researchers used the new artificial intelligence program to survey decades-long radar data sets, revealing seasonal and continent-wide migration patterns.

Scientists tested their system against multiple observational studies to verify its accuracy. The new technology — which scientists hope to eventually integrate with other technologies, like eBird, animal tracking devices, and earth observation instruments — could help researchers identify important stopping points for migrating species, information that could be used to plan more effective conservation efforts.

Meet Antara Mehta, Maharashtra’s First-Ever Woman Fighter Pilot

Meet Antara Mehta, Maharashtra’s First-Ever Woman Fighter Pilot

Geetika Sachdev•23 June 2020

Nagpur-based Antara Mehta, a flying officer with the Indian Air Force (IAF), has become the first-ever woman from Maharashtra to become a fighter pilot.

An engineer and national-level basketball player, she had harboured the dream of joining the IAF, ever since she was a child.

Today, she is the 10th woman fighter pilot in India. That’s not all – she is the first one from her family as well.

Antara graduated last week from the Air Force Academy in Hyderabad, and is the only woman officer from her batch, who has been selected for this stream.

Her advanced training will continue at the Air Force Station in Bidar and Kalaikunda.

Regional Public Relations Officer, Nagpur Region, Directorate of Public Relations congratulated Antara on her achievement

Flying Officer Antara Mehta, daughter of Ravi & Poonam Mehta becomes the first women Fighter Pilot frm #Nagpur & #Maharashtra at Combined Graduation Parade at Air Force Academy on 20 June 20.

She is the only women officer in her batch selected for Fighter Stream.

Antara had her share of hardships. She struggled to clear the Services Selection Board (SSB) exam twice, but didn’t give up, and the third time, she cracked it.

Looking back : In 2015, the then Indian Defence Minister Late Manohar Parrikar had issued an approval to induct women as fighter pilots in the IAF. Bhawana Kanth, Mohana Singh, and Avani Chaturvedi were the first women to be inducted as women fighter pilots in the IAF. While six women received training for this position, only three could qualify for advanced levels. Manohar Parrikar called it a ‘Red Letter Day’, when the three women pilots were inducted into the fighter stream, promoting avenues for more women to be a part of this wing. Out of the three, Flight Lieutenant Bhawana Kanth became the first woman fighter pilot to undertake a mission during the daytime.
