    This squid needs no introduction. Commonly known as the giant squid, Architeuthis are found around the world. It is unclear how many species there are in this genus, it ranges between 1 and 3 usually.

    Archi collection of articles

    Trying to collect a list of references for people recently introduced to architeuthis when new documentaries or spottings make the news.

    The Giant Squid: Dragon of the Deep - Smithsonian 2011 - Nice summary of archi through time.

    Photo in the News: Giant Squid Captured, Filmed for First Time - National Geographic News 2006 - photos and write up about Dr. Kubodera's first live catch and photos at the surface.

    Improving data quality to build a robust distribution model for Architeuthis dux
    Gianpaolo Coro, Chiara Magliozzi, Anton Ellenbroek, Pasquale Pagano 2014-2015 (subscription)
    • Highlights
    • We estimate the potential distribution map of the giant squid Architeuthis dux.
    • We detect important environmental parameters and produce absences from AquaMap
    • We combine information using feed-forward neural networks.
    • Our model is the most similar to an expert drawn map respect to other models
    • Our approach is also applicable to other rare species.
