On-Demand Webcast: Analytically Speaking, WildTrack and Duke University


See how WildTrack is monitoring endangered species via cutting-edge data analysis techniques, and learn how to better visualize medical, forensic or any other type of imaging data.



Analytically Speaking WildTrack and Duke University

Whether you’re a die-hard conservationist or someone interested in better visualizing medical, forensic or any other type of imaging data, you’ll want to join this conversation.

Zoe Jewell and Sky Alibhai founded WildTrack to monitor endangered species via cutting-edge data analysis techniques. Stuart Pimm of Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment is a world leader in the study of present-day extinctions and what can be done to prevent them.

Together, they’ll explore statistical solutions to the growing problem of animals in peril due to climate change and loss of habitat.

Watch the webcast.

On the table for discussion:

  • Tracking the footprints of endangered species – such as Amur tigers and polar bears – as a noninvasive way to monitor their status.
  • Using mapping capabilities in JMP® to track the movement of cheetahs in southern Africa.
  • Analyzing geometric profiles in photographs of diseased animal feet to make predictions about diagnosis, risk factors and healing.
  • Overcoming technical and practical obstacles associated with these tasks.

On-demand webcasts featuring additional thought leaders are also available.
