Pl@ntNet: one year after launch the project is booming!

Damien Dechambre - 20/03/2014

Launched in 2013 at the 50th Paris International Agricultural Show, the Pl@ntNet application allows users to collect, annotate and search for images to help them identify plants using their smartphone. The fruit of collaborative work between computer scientists and botanists, Pl@ntNet has found its audience and has even surpassed its inventors' expectations. Making botany accessible to everyone does not seem like such a far-fetched idea after all. Pierre Bonnet, coordinator of the project for CIRAD, and Alexis Joly, a researcher at Inria's Zenith team, provide an initial appraisal of the Pl@ntNet venture and reveal upcoming initiatives.
