The world of animals and nature is much richer than our ears tell us, as this captivating DLD session with Karen Bakker (University of British Columbia) and Michael John Gorman (Biotopia) will show you.
Karen Bakker is on a mission to decode the sounds of animals and plants with the help of technology. Sounds that are beyond the scope of human hearing. Thanks to advances in bioacoustics, artificial Intelligence, and other digital technologies, the Canadian researcher has been able to reveal sounds of nature in an unprecedented way.
