Elephants counted from space using satellites and AI

African elephants are the first animals to be successfully counted from space while moving through a complicated landscape that ranged from open grasses to forests. 

Researchers combined high-resolution images captured 372 miles (600 kilometers) above Earth’s surface by the satellites Worldview 3 and 4, along with deep computer learning to count the number of elephants in Addo Elephant National Park in South Africa.
