Here are a few use cases for this project:

  1. Marine Biology Research: Octopeyes can be used to assist marine biologists in studying and categorizing different octopus species and their physical features, such as eye patterns, by identifying different classes of observable features within images.

  2. Aquarium Management: This model can help aquarium staff in monitoring the well-being of octopuses by recognizing key facial features and identifying any possible anomalies or health concerns, such as uneven eye size or unusual markings.

  3. Environmental Monitoring: Octopeyes can aid environmentalists in tracking and understanding changes in octopus populations across different ecosystems by identifying and classifying specific characteristics found in images captured during field studies.

  4. Wildlife Photography Annotation: The model can help wildlife photographers automatically tag and organize their octopus images based on the identified classes, making it easier for them to keep track of their portfolio and share their work with others interested in marine life.

  5. Educational Tools: Octopeyes can be implemented into interactive educational applications that help users (students, researchers, and enthusiasts) learn more about various octopus species and their features, helping them recognize and distinguish between different classes accurately.
