4ZZZ reporter Anita Diamond spoke with Professor Karen Bakker of the University of British Columbia and a fellow at the Harvard Radcliffe Institute of Advanced Study on how scientists are using A.I to talk to animals.

For a deep dive…

Here is Professor Karen Bakker's personal website where you can go to find out more about her research and books on digital innovation and environmental governance. You can also visit which is home to the global conservation technology community of 7,000 people in 120 countries discussing topics like biologging, camera traps, and machine learning.
