Who’s a clever buoy? Facial recognition detecting sharks

A metal yellow buoy sits on the beach ready to be put into the water.As long as we continue to swim in the ocean, and as long as the perceived threat of sharks looms over our heads, there will be attempts to keep sharks at bay and reduce public fear and anxieties.

In what seems to be the most advanced shark detection system developed so far, and far from the hideous ‘shark culling’ in WA over summer, this system by Shark Mitigation Services hopes to have their buoy detecting sharks in the water using face-recognition technology and sending warning text messages to local lifeguards on the beach.
