Exozoology, Bullaki Science Podcast With Arik Kershenbaum

by Samuele Lilliu | 29 March 2022

In this Bullaki Science Podcast, Dr Arik Kershenbaum talks about animal intelligence and communication, and potential xenolanguages (alien languages).

In this Bullaki Science Podcast filmed at our recording studios in Cambridge and hosted by Dr Samuele Lilliu, Dr Arik Kershenbaum talks about animal intelligence and communication, including the experimental and analytical tools used by zoologists to decode animal “language”. These insights might be helpful to the current efforts by the SETI program to intercept signals from hypothetical advanced alien civilizations and decode potential xenolanguages (alien languages).

Dr Arik Kershenbaum is a zoologist, a Fellow and Director of Studies at Girton College at the University of Cambridge, working on animal communication and the information content in highly social and cooperative species, such as wolves and dolphins. In his book The Zoologist's Guide to the Galaxy: What Animals on Earth Reveal about Aliens and Ourselves, he lays down the foundation for a new field, Exozoology, or zoology beyond planet Earth.
