Animal Experts Use AI to Try Decipher Dolphin Chatter

Animal experts in Sweden are hoping that artificial intelligence can decipher dolphin chatter.

Dolphins have been known to be one of the most intelligent species in the world. Dolphins’ brains are actually larger than human brains, although they’re not as large as those of killer whales, sperm whales, and elephants.

They’re known to utilize “signature whistles” to identify themselves to others, according to Blue Voice. They use other dolphins’ signature whistles as a manner of calling their names.

“Dolphins can also mimic movements, of both humans and other animals. It is interesting to contemplate what dolphins and whales do with such large brains,” the group said. “Part of what they do is to maintain intricate and sophisticated communication amongst themselves. They are successful against predators like sharks because they organize and cooperate.”
