Do you know your robin from your wren?

School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science researcher Dan Stowell has co-founded a new app that can automatically identify birds through their song. Dan, a research fellow applying machine learning to sound, develops new techniques in structured ‘machine listening’, using both machine learning and signal processing. His latest venture is the app Warblr, which has a 95% success rate at identifying over 200 British bird species from recordings of their songs.
