An artificial intelligence has been programmed by Exeter University researchers to monitor the health of coral reefs by studying their sounds.
What sound does a coral reef make? The University of Exeter, in the UK, decided to find out for scientific purposes. A team of researchers created an artificial intelligence program that can determine the health of coral reefs by listening to the sounds that they make. These living organisms, made up of colonies of polyps and found on the bed of seas and oceans, produce complex sounds and noises due to the passage of fish and other animals. Analysing these special songs through AI allows researchers to obtain data useful in measuring the health of corals and launch restoration projects when necessary.
