The Interspecies Internet

The Interspecies Internet (I2I) is a non-profit organisation founded by Peter which was created to explore, encourage and facilitate communication between cognitive species. Some of you may have already seen the footage of Peter playing with Bonobo apes.

The organisation is unique as they seek to promote the cognitive abilities of species through technology. The hope is that the general population will gain a better understanding of the importance and intelligence of these animals.

The Interspecies Internet (I2I) was recently discussed at this conference at the World Science Festival. In the video below Neil Gershenfeld gives a nice breakdown of what they are trying to achieve (see 1 hour 6mins in) – however the whole discussion is worth checking out.
