Computer Vision identifications are hurting the reputation of iNaturalist

I’ve brought this up several times on the forums, and I’ll do so again here… in its current implementation, the Computer Vision IDs greatly diminish the accuracy of the data on iNaturalist, such that experts are dissuaded from contributing. Here’s a twitter thread from a contributor, Dr. Derek Hennen, expressing this same sentiment and pointing out how he’s using this site less because of the problems caused by inaccurate IDs.

I know this is an issue that’s been discussed, but is there any progress on improving the CV IDs, particularly with respect to biogeography?
