Change the actions of the computer vision AI to never suggest an identity to species or below. eg to only sub-genus level or above.
In scientific terms I am suggesting that the auto identification’s precision (ie to species level) exceeds its accuracy in many cases. The problem this causes is that it promotes observations to ‘research’ grade with only one ‘real’ subsequent ID.
An alternative would be to not count ‘automatic’ IDs towards ‘research grade’. (And I don’t accept the suggestion that all IDs are chosen by the person clicking on the auto suggestion, and therefore they are not AI identifications :-).
The AI/computer vision is a fantastic tool, but instead of helping in getting rid of poor initial IDs or lots of ‘unknowns’ and helping the community, it appears that it often results in more work in correcting wayward IDs, or perhaps worse posting of incorrect ‘research’ grade identifications. (eg see https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/create-separate-accounts-for-students-assigned-to-use-inaturalist). AI suggestions to genus level would still help decrease the number of ‘unknowns’ without the existing side effects.
