I am with ya all. It will take me 5-6 weeks to make this model ,so when I will complete that model, I will edit this comment and add a drive link to it.

Allan Chua says:

This starfish breed is predating on coral reefs in an alarming rate. Lost of coral reefs is bad for the ecosystem because it causes storm surges and lost of fish habitat which ultimately results to 1). Danger to society especially in sea-side villages. 2). Reduction of fish population which means more imbalance in marine ecosystems (Think of this specific starfish as the equivalent of locusts of the sea). I was trying to produce a dataset for this 11 days ago but I couldn't scrape enough data in Google.

Very nice! It's a good use of ML / DL

Diving in the great barrier reef was amazing years ago. good luck w the ML.
please do something about the thousand boat fishing fleet the CCP runs thats devastatiing ocean life like never before in history….its alarming

Daniel Mietchen says:

Great initiative, and kudos for planning to make the winning code open. This way, it can do more good in similar contexts, and we can all learn along. Speaking of openness, what about releasing this video and more of this channel's content under CC BY?

MONAD says:

Well, count me in!

I need yours $ to do my vacation.

Ankit Mhaske says:

Why it feels like we are challenging nature? 😣😣 It shouldn't be like this, right? Let starfish be.

Michael Mantion says:

If you want our help, stop adding music to the video. its annoying and makes it harder to understand what is being said.
