Unifying behavioral analysis through animal foundation models

— Behavioral analysis can provide a lot of information about the health status or motivations of a living being. A new technology developed at EPFL makes it possible for a single deep learning model to detect animal motion across many species and environments. This “foundational model”, called SuperAnimal, can be used for animal conservation, biomedicine, and neuroscience research.
