Revisiting giraffe photo-identification using deep learning and network analysis

An increasing number of research programs rely on photographic capture-recapture (vs. direct marking) of individuals to study distribution and demography within animal populations. Photo-identification of individuals living in the wild is sometimes feasible using idiosyncratic coat or skin patterns, like for giraffes. When performed manually, the task is tedious and becomes almost impossible as populations grow in size. Computer vision techniques are an appealing and unavoidable help to tackle this apparently simple task in the big-data era. In this context,
