      • KUL04 - SeaSleuths: Exploring Marine Biodiversity with Interactive Citizen Science

          • Malaysia is a vital hub for marine biodiversity, but most citizens remain unaware of its richness and the need for conservation. The South China Sea Repository and Reference Centre (RRC) holds over 50,000 aquatic specimens, yet its treasures remain hidden from the public. SeaSleuths emerges as a transformative force with a threefold vision. Firstly, it aims to make RRC's specimen data universally accessible through an interactive inventory or picture gallery search, enlightening the public about Malaysian marine life. Secondly, SeaSleuths presents species biodata through captivating infographics, shedding light on topics like invasive species, pollution, and climate change. Educational resources and real-time updates from research initiatives will foster an informed community dedicated to marine conservation. Thirdly, SeaSleuths creates an interactive citizen science platform where citizens actively contribute their sampling data and photographs. Expert verify species, and advanced AI aids species comparison, enhancing accuracy and efficiency. An interactive map allows users to explore species distribution in Malaysia and adjacent waters, deepening their understanding of the interconnected web of marine life. Gamification elements inspire engagement, rewarding participants with badges and achievements, fostering a passionate community committed to preserving Malaysian marine biodiversity. In summary, SeaSleuths unlocks Malaysia's marine diversity potential, inviting every citizen on a transformative journey towards ocean literacy, conservation, and ensuring future generations inherit a thriving and sustainable marine ecosystem.

          • What the challenge owner would like to develop over 48h
          • The development of a fully operational SeaSleuths platform would ensure a comprehensive and web application, which would include the following features:
            1. Data Accessibility (Objective 1): Data scientists and developers would work on building a robust database that houses the RRC's specimen collection data. They would implement efficient algorithms for data retrieval and ensure real-time updates are available to users.
            2. Infographics and Educational Resources (Objective 2): Content creators, marine biologists, and graphic designers would collaborate to develop engaging infographics and concise species biodata. They would also curate hyperlinks to educational resources on topics like invasive species, pollution, climate change, and marine conservation.
            3. User Interface and Experience (UI/UX) (Objectives 1 and 3): Designers and developers would collaborate to create an intuitive and visually appealing interface. The platform should be easy to navigate, with a seamless search function for the specimen inventory and interactive map.
            4. Citizen Science Integration (Objective 3): Developers and data scientists would create an interactive citizen science platform where participants can contribute their sampling data and photographs. They would develop systems to verify species and integrate AI features for species comparison.
            5. Gamification Elements (Objective 3): Gamification experts would implement badges, achievements, and rewards to incentivize user engagement. They would design challenges and tasks that encourage participants to explore, learn, and actively participate in marine conservation efforts.
            6. Outreach and Marketing (All): Marketing specialists would devise strategies to promote SeaSleuths, reaching out to the public, schools, and environmental organizations to generate awareness and encourage participation.
            7. Testing and Quality Assurance (All): Quality assurance testers would continuously evaluate the platform's functionality and user experience, identifying and rectifying any issues or bugs.
            8. Security and Privacy (All): IT experts would ensure the platform's security, protecting user data and preventing any potential breaches.
