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.

Translating canine communication with computer science
Researchers at North Carolina State University are inventing technology to decode dog talk. Hari Sreenivasan visits a computer science lab that has designed a harness to monitor physiological and emotional changes and send wireless commands through vibrations, which could be used with guide animals or search and rescue dogs.

Apps That Can "Translate Animal Sounds"
Looking apps that can do things that phones literally can't do like translating cat meows into English, Xray scans and more. No hate to these apps they all say in the description that they can't actually do these things, other than the cat one. It’s a actually a good translate app other than that though

Woof! Dog translator gets upgrade
The Bowlingual, a gadget that analyzes a dog's bark to detect its emotion, is being relaunched. The gadget can supposedly recognize and convey 6 basic emotions from a dog's bark.
