Totally thought this was going to be about an algorithm that tags videos of whales with text, and and how they noticed a pattern by looking at the tags.

Title would be better served by mentioning "handedness" in whales, but there was already a flurry of those last week, presumably on the same study.

same!


Oh, they attached cameras to the back of the whales. Nifty!

Edit: Blue Planet 2 apparently did something similar; this article has more details: http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/how-blue-planet-ii-team-1...


When I read "video tags," I immediately thought of <video> and was very confused.

I now get that they're cameras, but I'm sure I'll make this mistake next time I read "video tags," too.
