 //​**Summary**:​ Use Java programming to listen for reply comments on whale shark-related YouTube videos, and run those comments through Google Cloud Vision, Google Machine Translation,​ and Natural Language Processing to help qualify whale shark sightings with relevant information about when and where the animal was sighted. This is a great opportunity to get exposure to multiple forms of A.I. (computer vision, machine translation,​ OCR, NLP, etc.) while developing unique software that aids wildlife researchers in the field.// //​**Summary**:​ Use Java programming to listen for reply comments on whale shark-related YouTube videos, and run those comments through Google Cloud Vision, Google Machine Translation,​ and Natural Language Processing to help qualify whale shark sightings with relevant information about when and where the animal was sighted.

We have built similar agents for YouTube and Twitter, so we know we can help you succeed.
  
  
-**Description**: ​TBD+**Description**: ​The [[https://​www.flickr.com/​photos/​flukematcher|Flukematcher Flickr community]] is a group of humpback whale watching enthusiasts manually comparing photos pg humpback flukes, which are individually identifiable by their white and black contrast and by the unique, soundwave-like signature of their trailing edges. We already have the computer vision technology to match these flukes in images. We need you to apply your programming skills to build an intelligent agent that listens for new photo posts to the Flukematcher community and to run those posts automatically through our computer vision and NLP pipelines, quickly responding back to this community with the answer to "Which whale does this fluke belong to?" Social media APIs can be squirrely, so you'll need to build original code that connects Flickr to Wildbook, but the result will be a truly amazing and interactive blend of humans and A.I. studying whales!
