Japanese scientists have achieved a remarkable breakthrough by developing an AI system capable of understanding the emotions of chickens. Led by Professor Adrian David Cheok from the University of Tokyo, the team behind this innovation has named it “Deep Emotional Analysis Learning” (DEAL).
This pioneering study goes beyond its application to birds and carries broader implications. DEAL has the capacity to decipher various emotions in chickens, including hunger, fear, anger, contentment, excitement, and distress, utilizing advanced AI technology to analyze the sounds produced.
Professor Cheok is highly optimistic about the potential impact of this research, emphasizing that comprehending the emotions of animals can contribute to creating a better world for them. This newfound ability to interpret the emotions of chickens could ultimately result in enhanced welfare and care for these feathered creatures.
