So what is a Google Dog, and why is it interesting? Well, the concept behind the device is a combination of computer vision and machine learning. This smart device responds to the movements of a dog and rewards it over time based on the actions it performs. The device is designed to be fun for dogs, so it responds to the dog by playing games, producing scents, and dispensing treats.
The technology behind this concept is very similar to Google’s Google Glass. The difference between the Google Glass and the Google Dog is the technology. Google is teaming up with the Georgia Institute of Technology to create a device that can allow dogs to see and interact with people. This is called FIDO, which stands for Facilitating Interactions for Dogs with Occupations. The technology would allow humans to see the dogs’ eyes.
