The health of coral reefs will be monitored with the help of artificial intelligence.

A British study cited by Science Daily shows that coral reefs have a complex sonic landscape that can be used to judge their health. One of the main difficulties is that visual and acoustic studies of reefs are usually based on labor-intensive methods, so scientists rely on artificial intelligence.

For this purpose, they create a unique algorithm in which they insert records of healthy and diseased coral reefs. Thus, artificial intelligence learns to make a difference, and in subsequent tests it does correctly in 92 percent of cases. The team suggests using this approach to track the progress of reef restoration projects. Lead author Ben Williams says coral reefs face numerous threats, including climate change, so tracking their health and the success of conservation projects is a matter of vital.
