Earth Species Project is a non-profit dedicated to using artificial intelligence to decode non-human communication.

We believe that an understanding of non-human languages will transform our relationship with the rest of nature.

Along the way, we are building solutions that are supporting real conservation impact today.

More than 8 million species share our planet. We only understand the language of one.

We are motivated by the exponential progress we are experiencing in machine learning and human language: starting with the invention of techniques that can translate human languages without dictionaries. These new techniques can now be extended to the non-human domain.

Like the telescope, these new tools will forever change our perspective.

Our Roadmap

The motivating intuition for ESP was that modern machine learning can build powerful semantic representations of language which we can use to unlock communication with other species.
