Researchers seek to communicate with dolphins using new language

• Terrence Aym
Long before Dr. Doolittle, scientists have dreamed of communicating with some animal species. Successful attempts have been made with some of the primates and even to an extent canines and felines. Yet of all the remarkable animals in the animal kingdom, perhaps none is as intelligent as dolphins and porpoises. For many years researchers have sought ways to establish real, meaningful communications with the sleek species under the sea. Now brilliant researchers Denise Herzing, the founder of the Wild Dolphin Project located in Jupiter, Florida, and Thad Starner, an artificial intelligence (AI) expert on the faculty at Georgia Tech, have developed a new concept designed to breakthrough the species language barrier and establish real communication with other intelligent beings, namely the dolphins.
