No More Woof Can Translate Your Dog’s Thoughts into English

No More Woof Can Translate Your Dog’s Thoughts into English

Have you ever wished that your dog could talk to you, or that you could at least know what they’re thinking? As a dog owner myself, I can’t even count the amount of times I’ve scratched my head wondering why my dog was barking or whimpering for what seemed like no reason. Apparently, I’m not alone in wanting to know these things, since the No More Woof crowdfunded project on Indiegogo is now well over it’s goal.

No More Woof, is a new device that aims to translate your dog’s thoughts into English. Created by The Nordic Society for Invention and Discovery, the brains behind other amazing products such as the iRock and the Fly Lamp, the device is still a work in progress.

As you’ll see in the video, No More Woof is an all-in-one computerized headset and collar for your dog that can recognize certain thought patterns. Check out the 0:39 mark to see what I mean. Can you guess what kind of technology is used in the collar to help read your dog’s thought? Here’s a hint, the name sounds like a dessert.

If you’re as curious as I am about this project, be sure to help support it. You can do this by contributing as little as $5 or by sharing with others.

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

Does technology have all the answers?

This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

Creating technological solutions transparently

This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

Technology as the connecting tool

Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

“Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
