Alexa for animals: AI teaches us how creatures communicate

Artificial intelligence has already allowed humans to chat with robots like Alexa and Siri inspired by sci-fi. Some of his latest creations are inspired by a hero of children’s literature: Doctor Dolittle.

Researchers are using AI to analyze the “speech” of animals, allowing scientists to create systems that, for example, detect and monitor whale songs to alert nearby ships so they can avoid collisions. He may not yet be quite able to talk to animals like the century-old character in a children’s book would, but this application of so-called “deep learning” is helping advocates of the environment to protect animals, while potentially bridging the gap between human and non-human intelligences.
