#FloraIncognita is an app to identify #plants using the camera of your #smartphone. It is developed by publicly funded Max Planck Society and University Ilmenau. The German Ministry of Environment funds an additional 2.4 millions of public money for further development until 2024. The AI is trained by its users - voluntarily and unpaid. Not releasing the code as #OpenSource seems a theft of the commons, of public money and of the people. Public Money, #PublicCode !


@c0c0bird @opensourcegardens Is PlantNet #opensource / #opendata ? I found the statement "For keeping Pl@ntNet open and free to everyone" on their website but nothing about license...


@avanc @opensourcegardens Don't know, but FloraIncognita wanted me to register an account for things that worked on PlantNet without an account.
