Help build Merlin™

From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology - Use an online tool to train artificial intelligence software in order to create a smart online bird ID tool simple enough for anyone to use when learning about birds.

Merlin will be a new kind of bird identification tool—one that combines artificial intelligence with input from real-life bird watchers to produce an online "wizard" that helps people ID birds quickly and connects them to more information.

To build Merlin, we need to know how thousands of people remember and describe birds. You can help us through online activities that gather the information to help Merlin understand what bird watchers see. The more you play, the more you'll help Merlin become a true bird ID wizard.
