Catching Wildlife Poachers with Machine Learning

Recently, WPS partnered with Silverpond to implement a solution to automate the detection of illegal poaching in wildlife conservation parks across three continents. Using Silverpond’s cloud-based machine learning technology ‘Silverbrane’, WPS has been able to successfully automate the detection of illegal poaching activity. This has helped the organisation increase efficiencies in their ongoing quest to end wildlife poaching.


International Women’s Day Part 2

We want to take a minute to celebrate the exceptional work of Women in Machine Learning both in Australia and around the world. Be prepared, we have supplied linkes so you could decent on a real rabbit hole adventure reading up on their epic work


International Women’s Day Part 1

So it is international Women’s Day again and there is whole lot to celebrate. The last 12 months has been exciting for women in ICT across the globe BUT we are still seeing huge gender disparity especially in MLAI. So we wanted to do two things- announce our own initiative to combat the gender gap. We also want to take some time today to recognise some incredible women working in MLAI.

Women in Machine Learning: Deep Learning Workshops


Seeking collaboration with fashion brands!

We’re keen to partner up with fashion designers/brands to produce a small collection of clothes for an upcoming installation at a big To-Be-Announced Melbourne event. Get in touch with me: or read on for more details!

For a while now we’ve been playing around at the intersection of AI and Fashion …

  • We’ve experimented with dance t-shirts:

  • We’ve played around with CPPNs to produce cool patterns:


Silverpond goes to Fashion School (and other Public Demos)

Susie went to RMIT this afternoon to show off the Deep-Learning fashion-designer demo that we’ve put together. With the help of Dave they demonstrated the concepts involved in creative AI and fashion AI to orientation-week students:


Get Hype for White Night

You might have heard us talking about running an AI based fashion design assistant for Melbourne Knowledge Week, however we’re giving you a teaser on White Night this Saturday.

The installation will include a multi-user exploration interface for finding creating and styling new garments, shoes, and accessories derived from the “Fashion MNIST” dataset.
