Who is ESP?

Earth Species Project was founded in 2017 and is an open-source collaborative project dedicated to decoding animal communication. Read more about the humans behind the project. 

What is ESP's mission?

We believe that an understanding of non-human languages will change our ecological impact on this planet.

What is your timeline?

This is the beginning of the journey. It’s too early to tell how long an endeavor like this into the unknown will take; and yet, machine learning is in a Cambrian explosion. 100 new machine learning papers being released every day and that number is accelerating.

Our technical roadmap is available on our Github and we are committed to releasing all of our work in the open and towards the public benefit.

How is the project funded?

We are a 501c3 nonprofit supported by a community of donors.
