Animal acoustic communication often takes the form of complex sequences, made up of multiple distinct acoustic units. Apart from the well-known example of birdsong, other animals such as insects, amphibians, and mammals (including bats, rodents, primates, and cetaceans) also generate complex acoustic sequences. Occasionally, such as with birdsong, the(More)
– The identification and quantification of couplings between the individual components of a complex system can shed light on its hidden dynamics and provide insights about its mechanistic basis. Embodied cognition emerges and develops largely from the dynamic interactions in the coupled system formed by brain, body, and environment. A crucial problem is how(More)
In order to understand the role of vocalization in dolphin social interactions, we need to know which animals are engaged with which other animals, what activity they are engaged in, and which animals are vocalizing. In this poster we describe our efforts to address the linked problems of identifying individual animals and identifying which animal produced(More)
Detecting and tracking social marine mammals, including bottlenose dolphins, can help to explain their social dynamics, predict their behavior, and measure the impact of human interference. Multi-camera setups provide an opportunity to record the behavior of captive dolphins and create a massive dataset from which long term statistics can be extracted, but(More)
Humans, as a cooperative species, need to coordinate in order to achieve goals that are beyond the ability of one individual. Modeling the emergence of coordination can provide ways to understand how successful joint action is established. In this paper, we investigate the problem of two agents coordinating to move an object to one agent's target location(More)
