Important Chimp Recording Dataset Released After 40 Years
Researchers working at the Gombe National Park in Tanzania have released a large data set of chimpanzee vocalization recordings. The recordings, which number around 1250, make up the largest collection of its kind. The researchers expect them to be a boon to primatologists, particularly those studying the development of chimp “language.” The data, which was captured between 1971 and 1973 while the researchers worked with famed scientist Jane Goodall, was finally digitized earlier this year.
