Preface to the 2nd Workshop on Bridging the Gap between Information Science, Information Retrieval and Data Science

Ingo Frommholz, Haiming Liu, Massimo Melucci
2021 Conference on Human Information Interaction and Retrieval  
BIRDS 2021 is the second in a series of workshops to bridge the gap between Information Science, Information Retrieval and Data Science.  ...  It was held in conjunction with CHIIR 2021 and consisted of a selection of accepted papers and invited talks.  ...  While research is often conducted in silos, i.e. within a community, the aim of the BIRDS (Bridging the Gap between Information Science, Information Retrieval and Data Science) workshop it to bring together  ...

Hervé Goëau, Hervé Glotin, Willem-Pier Vellinga, Robert Planqué, Andreas Rauber, Alexis Joly
2015 Conference and Labs of the Evaluation Forum  
The main originality of this data is that it was specifically built through a citizen science initiative conducted by Xeno-Canto, an international social network of amateur and expert ornithologists.  ...  This overview presents the resources and the assessments of the task, summarizes the retrieval approaches employed by the participating groups, and provides an analysis of the main evaluation results.  ...  on real-world data collected by hundreds of recordists (iii) moving to a more usage-driven and system-oriented benchmark by allowing the use of meta-data and defining information retrieval oriented metrics  ...

CBNWI-50: A Deep Learning Bird Dataset for Image Translation and Resolution Improvement using Generative Adversarial Network

2019 VOLUME-8 ISSUE-10, AUGUST 2019, REGULAR ISSUE  
Hence, to bridge this gap, a new Ave database, 'Common Birds of North - Western India' (CBNWI-50), is also proposed in this work.  ...  Hence, this paper concatenates two GANs and aims to perform Image Translation using Cycle GAN model on bird images and improve their resolution using SRGAN.  ...  This is complementary information and the data which comes with annotations is basically labeled data. Producing labeled data is a very tedious and grueling manual labor for the researches.  ...

Describing the sounds of nature: Using onomatopoeia to classify bird calls for citizen science

Kellie Vella, Daniel Johnson, Paul Roe, George Vousden
2021 PLoS ONE  
Agreement as assessed by Kendall's W shows that overall, raters agreed regarding the suitability and unsuitability of the descriptors used across all bird calls.  ...  Bird call libraries are difficult to collect yet vital for bio-acoustics studies. A potential solution is citizen science labelling of calls.  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank Rebecca Dilworth for her work on the analysis and literature review, Sofia Woods who created the experimental architecture, and the participants for their time and  ...
