Scientists say new AI can translate what chickens are saying

  • Researchers in Japan have used artificial intelligence to interpret the emotional states of chickens, including hunger, fear, anger, contentment, excitement, and distress. They developed a system called Deep Emotional Analysis Learning , which adapts to the chickens' vocal patterns over time and achieves a high accuracy in identifying their mental states.
  • The study involved recording and analyzing samples from 80 chickens, with the help of a team of animal psychologists and veterinary surgeons. The researchers believe that understanding animals' emotional states through AI can contribute to designing a better world for them. University of Tokyo professor Adrian David Cheok, the leader of the study, also plans to extend this AI technology to other animals.
  • The research team acknowledged that their model's accuracy may vary with different breeds and environmental conditions, as well as the limitations of non-acoustic cues such as body language and social interactions in chicken communication. Nonetheless, their findings open up possibilities for using AI tools in conservation efforts to understand animal populations better.
