With advances in machine learning, we now stand a chance to decode communication in non-human animal and plant life, which has fascinated humans for millennia. Cutting-edge technology can be used to benefit not only humankind, but other species on our planet, to better understand and protect the life around us. To make this possible, one needs to bring together and build on the latest discoveries of experts in disparate fields, including machine learning, signal processing, data science, linguistics, and acoustics. The goal of the workshop is to explore the challenges and current state-of-the-art in the study of non-human species communication as well as disciplines and technologies that are likely to provide solutions to these challenges.  

Further details about this workshop will be posted in due course. Enquiries may be sent to the organizers decoding2020 [at] lists.simons.berkeley.edu (at this address).
