Here are a few use cases for this project:

  1. Fossil Identification: Paleontologists, archaeologists, and researchers studying ancient shark remains could use the Shark Taxonomy model to identify and classify fossilized teeth more accurately and efficiently.

  2. Wildlife Conservation and Management: Marine biologists and ecologists could use the model to monitor shark species populations, distribution, and migration patterns by identifying teeth collected in research studies, contributing to better understanding of shark ecosystems.

  3. Law Enforcement and Trade Regulation: The Shark Taxonomy model can be used by authorities to detect and prevent illegal shark trade and fishing practices by identifying and verifying shark teeth being sold or transported, ensuring compliance with international conservation laws.

  4. Shark Incident Forensics: In cases of shark-human interactions, forensic experts can utilize the Shark Taxonomy model to identify the species involved from collected tooth fragments, aiding in better understanding of behavioral patterns and informing appropriate safety precautions.

  5. Educational and Museum Displays: The Shark Taxonomy model can be helpful in developing engaging and accurate educational materials or museum exhibits about shark species, as it can quickly identify and label teeth, allowing curators to create more informed and immersive visitor experiences.
