Bonus Audio: Plant IDs


Friday, December 17, 2010

Peter Belhumeur has been collaborating with the Smithsonian on an iPhone app for plant identification. It's based on the same systems he’s developed for facial recognition. During our visit to Belhumeur’s lab, he explained to Kurt how the app works.

Is there a name for the iPhone field guide app so we can look out for it next spring?

Hi Emily --

It's not available yet, but Peter Belhumeur says they hope to roll it out officially on Earth Day (April 22) 2011.

Stay tuned,

Interesting! Has this iPhone app been released yet? How can we find it?
