Computers successfully trained to identify animals in photos. Researchers trained a deep neural network to classify wildlife species using 3.37 million camera-trap images of 27 species of animals obtained from five states across the United States. The model then was tested on nearly 375,000 animal images at a rate of about 2,000 images per minute on a laptop computer, achieving 97.6 percent accuracy -- likely the highest accuracy to date in using machine learning for wildlife image classification.

97.6% is not bad but most will see that as not acceptable unless its 99.9% because I'm sure the process doesn't come cheap.
