To develop, using the iMagine platform, a prototype service for processing acoustic underwater recordings for identification and recognition of marine species and other noise types (e.g., offshore piling).

Development actions during iMagine
The underwater sound classification service has large potential to support the scientific community in marine biodiversity and ecosystem research. Underwater sound and noise pollution are increasingly recognized as an essential indicator of healthy seas and oceans.
Detecting and classifying different species can contribute to species abundance assessment, and detection and characterization of noise pollution can provide insight in effects of human activities on marine life.
