In the future, researchers hope they won't even need online volunteers to process their penguin data. Each volunteer's annotated photo goes toward a training set for a computer program that's able to learn from examples. The team hopes that with enough examples, the program will eventually be able to recognize penguin adults, chicks and eggs on its own. So yes, click by click, you're rendering yourself obsolete as a penguin-spotter. Better get in while the going is good.
