I just learned about you from Bok of Free-DC so I joined up.
However, I can not get any WUs downloaded.
Is there a problem?

Thanks

There are no WUs at the current time, and it may be a few weeks before any become available.

At this time, the project is in need of people to watch video of bird nests and mark what is happening. You can join that effort by selecting the Watch Video menu at the top of the page.

Welcome to the project!

Hi Gandalf,

Glad to have you here. This project involves both crowd sourcing and volunteer computing. Right now I've been working on getting a lot of the crowd sourcing elements done -- we just had another 15,000 hours of video gathered by Susan Felege (our wildlife biologist) for this year so I've been updating webpages and making sure all that video is is watchable by people.

I have a few more webpage updates to make, and after that's done I'll get back to generating workunits. The goal of the project is to take the observations our users make for the videos (which you can watch here: http://volunteer.cs.und.edu/wildlife/video_selector.php) and then compare them to different computer vision algorithms (which is what the workunits do).

It'll probably be a week or two before more workunits are sent out (I need to make sure the new 15k hours of video is converted to the appropriate format for web streaming and analysis by the client application).

--Travis

It's now been from mid-August 2013 to mid-December 2013 (4 months) and I have not seen one WU.
Very interesting.

Agree. I also asked several times. And I'm also waiting. ;-)
