Internet of Elephants – Presented by Ellis Bartholomeus, Internet of Elephants at The Internet of People Event which will take place on October 03, 2017, at B.Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
In the past 40 years, the world has lost 50% of its wildlife. And it is a struggle to keep the public involved, despite a common love for animals. Our products are intended to change that by getting millions of people to pay attention to wildlife every day via old plus new data of these animals collected by scientist with sensors. IoE aims to create games that make conservation fun for anyone.
