AI – Artificial intelligence at the Hainich-Dün exploratory
The meaning of deadwood in the forest, decomposition processes of rats by small animals and microbes, as well as the effect of clear-cutting on bats, among other things, are being researched at the exploratory in Hainich-Dün. In addition to familiar and well-tried research methods, artificial intelligence is being used as a research tool in the course of the new funding phase.
