Bat chat: machine learning algorithms provide translations for bat squeaks | Science | The Guardian

'The approach, they reveal, relied on harnessing machine learning algorithms originally used for human voice recognition. '

'The team then trained the machine learning algorithm with around 15,000 bat calls from seven adult females, each categorised using information gleaned from the video footage, before testing the system’s accuracy. '

'But, writing in the journal Scientific Reports, Yovel and colleagues describe how they managed to discern meaning within the squeaks. '

'It turns out you don’t need to be Dr Doolittle to eavesdrop on arguments in the animal kingdom. '

'The team spent 75 days continuously recording both audio and video footage of 22 bats that were split into two groups and housed in separate cages. '
