Dr. Dolittle would be so proud.
In a TED Talk posted in July, scientists and researchers announced they were working on a radical idea – creating The Interspecies Internet.
This is the description from YouTube:
Apes, dolphins and elephants are animals with remarkable communication skills. Could the Internet be expanded to include sentient species like them? A new and developing idea from a panel of four great thinkers — dolphin researcher Diana Reiss, musician Peter Gabriel, internet of things visionary Neil Gershenfeld and Vint Cerf, one of the fathers of the Internet.
When I first saw the headline, I wondered what insane research our tax dollars were funding now. After watching it, though, I’m intrigued. Take a look:
What do you think? Does it sound plausible? Or do you think it’s a waste of time and money?
My family and I have a busy, busy weekend scheduled, so I may not be able to respond to comments until Monday. Have a wonderful weekend!
