About

Biolens is a web application for automatic image classification of biological species using deep learning models. Currently available models can be used for classifying Portuguese species of dragonflies and damselflies (Dragonlens), butterflies (Lepilens), and moths (Mothlens).

An earlier version of the Lepilens model is also used by the Lepilens iOS app (to be updated in the near future in regard to Lepilens and other models).

Team

Biolens has been developed by Luís Lopes and Eduardo R. B. Marques (both from DCC/FCUP & CRACS / INESC-TEC), jointly with students Tomás Mamede (MSc student at DCC/FCUP), António Filgueiras (MSc student at DCC/FCUP), Manuel Coutinho (MSc student at DEI/FEUP), and Miguel Marques (former MSc student at DCC/FCUP).

Acknowledgements

The Biolens models were trained using cloud services generously provided through the Google Cloud research credits program. Training images were mostly taken from the iNaturalist Research-grade Observations and Observation.org, Nature data from around the World datasets, published at GBIF. Complementary training photos for the Lepilens model were taken from Lepidoptera Portugal Facebook group, Lusoborboletas, Moths and Butterflies of Europe and North Africa, Butterflies in Hungary, Lepidoptera and their ecology, Lepiforum, euroButterflies, Butterflies of France, and UK Butterflies.
