Train Your Dog to Clean Up After Itself With This Clever Toy Box

Train Your Dog to Clean Up After Itself With This Clever Toy Box

If you have a spoiled dog with a lot of toys, then you’re probably used to seeing dog toys all over your house. I have a Maltese dog who loves to drag out the majority of his toys, and then nonchalantly leaves them all over the floor once he’s done playing. My husband and I often joke that it would be cool if he knew how to put them all back into his toy box. Well, now that dream can actually become a reality, thanks to the Tidy Dog toy box.

Tidy Dog is a modern, battery operated toy box that rewards your dog whenever it put a toy into the bin. You can add things your dog loves, like kibble or treats, to come out of the side chute. With the smart sensor technology, your dog won’t be able to trick the bin into dispensing treats. Just see for yourself in the short demonstration video below.

While Tidy Dog is indeed clever, I wonder if it is really effective in teaching your dog to clean up after itself. For dogs who don’t catch on as quickly, it could take weeks or months for them to figure out just how to get those tasty treats. However, it seems promising and worth a try. Do you think Tidy Dog is a keeper?

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.
