Analysis of Humpback Whale Songs using Information Theory Techniques

This project explores the structure and predictability of humpback whale songs through the lens of information theory. First, a variety of samples of humpback whale songs will be converted into sequences of symbols, done with automated and human classifiers separately. Then, these sequences will be investigated using both parametric and nonparametric entropy estimators, to gain insight into how much information these songs communicate, and determine whether their structure is hierarchical.
