Japanese scientists have made a significant breakthrough by creating an AI system that can understand the emotions of chickens. Professor Adrian David Cheok from the University of Tokyo led the team behind this innovation called “Deep Emotional Analysis Learning” (DEAL).
This exciting study has broader implications and isn’t just about birds. DEAL can decipher various emotions in chickens, including hunger, fear, anger, contentment, excitement, and distress, using advanced AI technology to analyze the sounds the chickens make.
Professor Cheok is enthusiastic about the potential impact of this research, stating that understanding what animals are feeling can help create a better world for them. This newfound ability to interpret chicken emotions could ultimately lead to improved welfare for these feathered creatures.
