beta release

We proudly announce that we have released a beta version of API.

The new API enables you to identify species of terrestrial invertebrates, including insects and spiders from images using a machine-learning model. It is easy to use and we already love how it works. 💪

Identify over 6000 classes of insects

With the beta version of API, you can identify more than 6387 classes of invertebrates with 48% TOP1 accuracy.  The results are on the level of species, genus, family, and/or order based on the picture quality and taxa popularity. Covered species include the most common types of invertebrates such as butterflies, spiders, ants, dragonflies, etc.

Here is an overview of supported entities with the number of classes:

Integrate API into your solution and let’s help them together. For more info see our documenation.

In the response, you will receive the following information:

  • Suggestions with probabilities
  • Scientific (latin) and common names
  • Taxonomical classification
  • Similar images

And it doesn’t end with insect

Our experience with the current products made us confident that we can develop other excellent nature-related image recognition APIs. Besides improving our current products, our focus in the following year will be birds, reptiles, rocks, animal tracks, … you name it!
