    Can we learn to talk to sperm whales? | David Gruber

    Can we learn to talk to sperm whales? | David Gruber

    Animals are communicating -- but what are they saying? And can we talk back? Marine biologist David Gruber introduces Project CETI: a team of scientists, linguists and AI specialists hoping to decode sperm whale language. Using noninvasive robots and a machine-learning algorithm to collect and analyze millions of sperm whale vocalizations known as coda, the team aims to demystify the communication structures and dialects of these majestic creatures -- and possibly even crack the interspecies communication code. (This ambitious plan is a part of the Audacious Project, TED's initiative to inspire and fund global change.)

Williams identifies five common patterns of bias that cause these programs to fail -- and offers a data-driven approach to pinpoint where things go wrong and how to make progress instead.

Attention

Excellent description of my sister
She developed her on following on the Internet
I am not sure of all the different terms used for the various platforms used
But it about killed her to get put into face book jail for spewing hate messages
This Ted Talk definitely afforded me an understanding of social media
But not range on all those find a friend. Make a friend. Fake a friend sites

Stay out of Politics

TED talks is slowly turning into VICE news.

Keep on the scientific and interesting topics, I don’t listen to TED for politics. Hundreds of other political podcasts I can go to for that.

Awesome

A lot of people stereotype Tedtalks to being something to listen or watch, but learn nothing at all. And that’s what I thought. Until about 3 months ago. Now I realize that these people’s life passions and success are being told through this “outreach.” It’s amazing and definitely worth a listen.
