We wish A.I. was used for exclusively nonconsequential things like this, not for taking over all of our jobs and eventually society.

Scientists from Japan say they have been using A.I. to translate chicken clucks and can figure out what they’re saying with 80% accuracy.

The translations are very basic, but according to Research Square, the researchers use the sound of the chickens’ vocalizations to determine “distinct emotional states” like hunger, fear, anger, contentment, excitement, and distress.

This research could prove to be very beneficial for animal care, as it will allow humans with some level of accuracy to know an animal’s true emotional state.
