Where to find iNat Vision Model?

Hello. I am developing a device to automatically identify butterflies and it would be super helpfull to use the new model that was released some months ago (https://www.inaturalist.org/blog/31806-a-new-vision-model).

I found the model that was used in iNat Competition. The main problem with the model “faster_rcnn_resnet101_fgvc” is that it can only detect 2854 species, and just some are butterflies.

If it is not possible to get the new model and run it locally, can I run predictions with the API? I found that I can try the new model here: https://www.inaturalist.org/computer_vision_demo, but I do not know how to integrate it in my project in that way.


The iNat vision model itself is not available via public API and it’s not available to download.


Thanks for the reply! Will it be available in the future?

As far as I know, almost everything from iNaturalist is open source available in Github. Why not the model?
