AI Reveals Surprising Discoveries: Predatory Dinosaurs May Have Been Vegetarian

AI predicts a dinosaur that was thought to have been a predatory herbivore

Many people believe that these animals were carnivores.

Researchers used artificial intelligent (AI) to uncover information about dinosaurs. They wanted to know if a particular dinosaur was a prey or predator. AI revealed that the dinosaur thought to be carnivore was actually an herbivore.

To track these fossils, the new analysis used deep convolutional networks (DCNNs), computing systems based upon neural networks in the brain.
