Training computers to recognize species

There are 45,000 species of animals, plants and fungi in Norway, way too many for anyone to recognize. We need to recognize them when registering where they are though, so we can protect them. Artificial Intelligence can help with that: it learns to recognize species from images to tell you what's what. But how does that actually work? How can we make it better? And will we still need biologists?
