Humans translating wild and domestic animal languages is not a new idea—this researcher, alone in the jungle, realized by deciphering monkey sounds that a leopard was tracking him—but now there’s an AI that can help, at least with chicken linguistics. It successfully translates certain chicken sounds, with near-100-percent accuracy. So far, it can tell you when they’re saying they’re hot or stressed, and bonus, it can detect congestion in their voices, flagging when they’re getting sick. A Chicken Run escape may not work so well these days.
