Wildlife Automatic Recognition
Isoperla pioneered the development of automatic recognition software for wildlife using quantitative statistics and machine learning. We have over 10 years experience in this area and lead a dynamic collaborative team in delivering robust products to hundreds of thousands of customers.
We created Bird Song Id, one of the world's top selling mobile reference apps. This app identifies bird species from songs picked out of the air using the device microphone, like Shazam for birds. It was the first of its kind in the world, The Times Newspaper called it an 'astonishingly sophisticated piece of software'.
Other innovations include Wild Flower Id with automatic recognition of flowers from user photographs. Right now one of our apps will be No. 1, or thereabouts, in at least one app store major market and at least one category. We can say that with confidence as it has been the case since 2012. We recently sold this brand of wildlife apps to our good friends and long term collaborators at Sunbird Images.
We have a comprehensive understanding of the technologies underpinning resource limited platforms, and use a blend of agile and traditional techniques to build robust well architected software. We have our own highly functional application framework which supports seamless server integration, data synchronisation, mapping, geolocation and custom user interface controls.
We are now in the early stages of developing remote sensing and surveying products using low power chipsets and automatic recognition algorithms.
We make products for other people too. Isoperla work with companies, academic institutions, charities and individual entrepreneurs.
Isoperla was formed in 2007 after receiving a regional innovation award in association with Bath Spa University and Bath University's Ventures Innovation Centre. The award was to help develop a new generation of software for mobile devices. Since then we have become an international collaborative network of software engineers, content providers, image specialists, graphics designers and translators.
