Ocean Spy is a platform dedicated to image annotation by citizen for the study of marine ecosystems.

Internet users will thus have access to diversified images of different marine habitats and species and will be able to participate in their analysis through attractive interfaces and adapted functionalities. The project is therefore based on collaboration between scientists and citizens: the engagement of citizens making it possible to help scientists (data acquisition, development of “big data” analysis methods based on artificial intelligence (AI) and therefore improvement of understanding of these environments), the scientists providing knowledge and raising awareness among the general public.

This Project is hosted by the Ocean Decade Programme One Ocean Network for Deep Observation
