Understanding data science by an example

To illustrate the life cycle and challenges of building a learning algorithm for specific data, let us consider a real example. The Nature Conservancy is working with other fishing companies and partners to monitor fishing activities and preserve fisheries for the future. So they are looking to use cameras in the future to scale up this monitoring process. The amount of data that will be produced from the deployment of these cameras will be cumbersome and very expensive to process manually. So the conservancy wants to develop a learning algorithm to automatically detect and classify different species of fish to speed up the video reviewing process.

Figure 1.1 shows a sample of images taken by conservancy-deployed ...
