Scientists say they have translated pig grunts into emotions for the first time,
Researchers trained an artificial intelligence algorithm with 7,414 recordings of pig noises,
Gathered throughout the life stages of 411 pigs.
Dr. Briefer at the University of Copenhagen said:
‘Now we need someone who wants to develop the algorithm into an app that farmers can use to improve the welfare of their animals.’
The researchers hope their algorithm might pave the way for a new platform for farmers to keep an eye on their animals’ psychological well-being.
Do we really want to know what a pig in heat is saying?
So we will know just how happy a pig is in slop.
