Having trouble discerning one furry panda from another? A facial recognition app will make it easy for you.

很難區分毛絨絨的熊貓?這款面部識別應用可以讓你覺得很容易。

The app is developed by the China Conservation and Research Center for Giant Pandas along with researchers in Singapore Nanyang Technological university and Sichuan Normal University.

該應用由中國大熊貓保護研究中心與新加坡南洋理工大學和四川師范大學的研究人員共同開發。

The image analysis research kicked off in 2017. A database now contains about 120,000 images and 10,000 video clips of giant pandas.

這項圖像分析研究于2017年啟動。現有數據庫儲存了大約12萬張大熊貓圖片和1萬個大熊貓短視頻。

Close to 10,000 panda pictures have been analyzed, marked and annotated.

分析、標記和注釋了大約1萬張熊貓圖片。

Using the database, researchers are able to carry out automatic facial recognition on panda faces to tell one animal from another, the center said.

研究中心說,使用這個數據庫,研究人員能夠進行自動的面部識別來區分大熊貓。

Panda researchers hope algorithms and AI technology will help them analyze data on pandas both in captivity and the wild.

大熊貓研究人員希望算法和人工智能技術能幫助他們同時分析圈養和野生熊貓的數據。

"The app and database will help us gather more precise and well-rounded data on the population, distribution, ages, gender ratio, birth and deaths of wild pandas, who live in deep mountains and are hard to track," said Chen Peng, a researcher with the base who co-authored a paper on "Giant Panda Face Recognition Using Small Database."

陳鵬是該基地的一名研究員,也是《使用小數據庫對大熊貓進行面部識別》論文的合著者。他表示:“這款應用和數據庫能夠幫助我們收集更精確,更全面的數據,包括大熊貓的數量,分布情況,年齡,性別比,出生和死亡。這些野生大熊貓生活在深山中,很難追蹤。”

"It will definitely help us improve efficiency and effectiveness in conservation and management of the animals," Chen said.

陳鵬說:“這肯定有助于我們提高動物保護和管理的效率和有效性。”

China has carried out four scientific field research projects of giant pandas in the wild.

中國已經開展了四項野生大熊貓實地科研項目。

The giant panda was scientifically discovered 150 years ago and named in the city of Ya’an, Sichuan. It remains one of the world’s most endangered species.

科學家在約150年前發現了這些大熊貓,以四川雅安命名。它目前仍然是世界最瀕危的物種之一。

The number of captive pandas was 548 globally as of November last year. Fewer than 2,000 pandas live in the wild, mostly in the provinces of Sichuan and Shaanxi.

截至去年11月,全球圈養大熊貓數量為548只。野生大熊貓不到2000只,大多生活在四川和陜西。
