Mosquito Neural Netting: To identify the sound of a single mosquito

A complex new attack on mosquitoes, sort of, is outlined in this new study about identifying the sound of a single mosquito:

Mosquito Detection with Neural Networks: The Buzz of Deep Learning,” Ivan Kiskin, Bernardo Pérez Orozco, Theo Windebank, Davide Zilli, Marianne Sinka, Kathy Willis, Stephen Roberts, arXiv:1705.05180, May 15, 2017.

The paper points out, especially, a limitation encountered in a previous attempt to enlist technology against mosquitoes:

“Chen et al. [6] attribute the stagnation of automated insect detection accuracy to the mere use of acoustic devices, which are allegedly not capable of producing a signal sufficiently clean to be classified correctly. As a consequence, they replace microphones with pseudo-acoustic optical sensors, recording mosquito wingbeat through a laser beam hitting a phototransistor array – a practice already proposed by Moore et al. [22]. This technique however relies on the ability to lure a mosquito through the laser beam.”

BONUS: A very different approach to battling mosquitoes is outlined in the NIH report “Novel insecticide blocks mosquitoes’ ability to urinate.”

    I do agree with all the concepts you’ve presented on your post. They’re really convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very short for newbies. Could you please lengthen them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your weblog? My blog site is in the very same niche as yours and my users would genuinely benefit from a lot of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this alright with you. Thanks a lot!

    I’ve learned some new things from a blog post. Also a thing to I have observed is that usually, FSBO sellers can reject an individual. Remember, they might prefer to not ever use your services. But if you maintain a steady, professional partnership, offering guide and keeping contact for around four to five weeks, you will usually be capable to win a discussion. From there, a house listing follows. Thanks
