Collaborative Research: CDI Type I: Computational Models for the Automatic Recognition of Non-Human Primate Social Behaviors
The goal of this project is to develop methods that will permit researchers to remotely and automatically monitor behavior of primates and other highly social animals. The PIs will collect behavioral data from cameras and microphones. They will then develop statistical models and computational algorithms to track the individuals in the group and to recognize facial expressions and vocalizations.
