Deep Squeak is the name of an artificial intelligence program that was designed to detect the high-frequency “squeaks” mice and rats make when they are stressed.

If that seems like a classic case of mislabeling, blame marine ecologist Elizabeth Ferguson and her company Ocean Science Analytics, which leads the project.
