Deep learning has gained much attention and been applied in many different fields. In this paper, we present a web application developed to identify and detect the number of distinct feral cats of Australia using deep learning algorithms targeted to data captured from a set of remote sensing cameras. Feral cat recognition is an especially challenging application of deep learning since the cats are often similar and, in some cases, differ only in very small patterns on their fur. Given the automated, sensor-based image capture from remote cameras, further challenges relate to the limited number of images available. To tackle this, we train four neural network models to distinguish 75 classes ..
