The exhibition (Bits, Bytes & Biodiversity) at the Information Centre of the Swiss National Park (Nationalparkzentrum). shows current research projects at the University of Zurich. Ecologists investigate how animal and plant worlds react to human and climatic influences.

In doing so, science is making increasing use of digital tools. For example, camera traps such as those used by the Swiss National Park.

Thanks to these camera traps, scientists can observe wild animals without influencing their behaviour and without using invasive means such as collars or ear tags. However, this method generates huge amounts of data. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is being used to select, monitor and analyse these results.
