AI and advanced recording tech enable researchers to decode non-human communication. Digital bioacoustics, described by Karen Bakker, aids scientists in understanding and interpreting animal and plant sounds, revolutionizing ecological studies.

Breakthroughs in AI and advancements in recording device technology are now empowering researchers to listen in on conversations outside of human hearing. This could lead to the prospect of developing an animal version of Google Translate, which becomes plausible through the same AI technology that facilitates pattern recognition and replication, as seen in chatbots like ChatGPT. Such applications hold promise for biologists seeking insights into non-human… Read the full blog for free on Medium.
