Seeking Eye Contact: Fish Gaze Reveals Self-Awareness

For many years, I held a weekly feeding session for the resident reef sharks and their visitors in the study area where I observed their behaviour. If I had enough shark food, I would scatter crumbs into the water for the fish after the sharks had left. The fish knew this, so they had to wait, and while they were waiting, they were excited.

Will humans ever understand what these cetaceans are saying?

Vil det være muligt at forstå hvalsprog?

Project CETI er en nonprofitorganisation, der benytter sig af maskinlæring og robotteknologi til at lytte til og oversætte hvalers kommunikation. Organisationen arbejder på at udvikle en dybere forståelse af det komplekse kommunikationssystem, som kaskelothvaler bruger, og dele denne forståelse med verden.
