    AI-based motion-capture system for lab animals

    A new system that uses artificial intelligence to track animal movements is poised to aid a wide range of studies, from exploring new drugs that affect behavior to ecological research. The approach can be used with laboratory animals such as fruit flies and mice as well as larger animals. 
     
    The technology, developed by Mala Murthy, Joshua Shaevitz, graduate student Talmo Pereira, and then-undergraduate Diego Aldarondo of the Class of 2018, accurately detects the location of each body part — legs, head, nose and other points — in millions of frames of video.
