What are dolphins talking about?

(SWEDEN)

Researchers in Sweden are compiling a dolphin-language dictionary. Yes – you read correctly.

The country’s KTH Royal Institute of Technology will use artificial intelligence technology developed by Swedish startup Gavagai AB, designed for language-analysis.

“We hope to be able to understand dolphins with the help of artificial intelligence technology,” Jussi Karlgren, an adjunct professor of language technology at KTH and cofounder of Gavagai, said in a statement. “We know that dolphins have a complex communication system, but we don’t know what they are talking about yet.”

The so-called Dolphin Project will take four years.
