Odyssee is focused on a lack of engagement with the natural world affecting over 60% of Americans and urban populations around the globe. Using a pool of more than 500,000 photos from over 8,000 species, we fine tune a nature specific pre-trained neural net model, that is the backbone of a scavenger hunt through Yosemite. We are applying computer vision to a fascinating game experience and bringing it to edge mobile devices so people that might otherwise stay home will go outside.
This is being launched to users visiting Yosemite National Park in April 2020. We intend to add more parks and expand hunt packs (seasonal wildflowers, landscapes, etc.) in our next phase.
