Toward a science of computational ethology

Neuron. 2014 Oct 1;84(1):18-31. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2014.09.005.


The new field of “Computational Ethology” is made possible by advances in technology, mathematics, and engineering that allow scientists to automate the measurement and the analysis of animal behavior. We explore the opportunities and long-term directions of research in this area.
