Neurotechnology researchers have won first place in a competition designed to find AI solutions for fisheries monitoring.

The competition was organized by Kaggle, an online crowdsourcing platform aimed at the tech and research communities. Organized by The Nature Conservancy and aimed ultimately at applying sophisticated computer vision technology to the fight to protect global fisheries from overfishing and other threats, the Nature Conservancy Fisheries Monitoring competition essentially asked participants to develop algorithms that could automatically detect and identify different species of fish and other marine life.

A group composed entirely of members of Neurotechnologys AI development team, working under the team name TROLL (Towards Robust Optimal Learning of Learning), beat 2,292 other teams to take the companys $50,000 first prize with their algorithm solution.

Its extracurricular as far as Neurotechnologys business goes, but the Kaggle win highlights the talent at work in the company, which recently announced a new version of its MegaMatcher Accelerator platform, which Neurotechnology says is now the fastest biometric engine in the world.
