TIDBIT: PET TRANSLATORS

While you're pondering today's main blog - not a "rant" but at least a "grumble" - consider this article shared by Mr. V.T., for not only is AI opening up a bright new vista of bipartisanship according to Newsweek's experts, it's opening up new areas of inter-species communication:

Dogs can't speak human. Here's the tech that could change that.

Experts also agree that within a few years, "husband" and "wife" translators will also become commonplace, as AI can be used to resolve domestic conflicts and promote the general welfare and tranquility. What a relief! You'll no longer have to spend time with your pet and/or spouse to know how they're feeling. Just do a Google search...

...sigh...

    Man is an animal.
    Animals communicate!
    What’s new?
    As I said,
    Nothing.
    Just another way to make a buck.
    S…… are born every day.

    Having grown up with cats and dogs, I understand the differences between the pack mentality of dogs and the solipsistic killer approach of cats. The relationship has always been clear with cats, no translator required. They’ll stick around as long as things are going to their liking – if not, they’ll leave.

    Dog translators will hit the market before a cat version can be developed. Dog dialogue will prove to be mostly boring and gratuitous conversations.

    Cats will never cooperate in any effort to understand them by academics or techno-weenies as they have nothing to gain by being understandable or predictable. The first version of the cat translator will become a collectible in the “what were they thinking” category.

  3. Even people who are normally in beta brain mode usually manage to understand their pets. And those who don’t will not like what they hear via “doggle translate” assuming that it actually works.

  4. I still admire the 1983 science fiction film Brainstorm. It concerned an advanced neural system that directly recorded the sensory and emotions/feelings of a subject. A good flick.

    I remember when the Christopher Walken and Natalie Wood characters each sat down and recorded their own ‘experience’ of the opposite partner – feelings and all. Then, each viewed/felt the other’s recording. Instant understanding! Their bonding after that was unbreakable. Most heartwarming…

    Anything for a buck.

    I’ve been in quite a few professions: the good, the bad and the ugly.
    In car sales we used to use the computer close when it was first making its inroads into society at large.
    It was a HUGE money maker.
    My, how the times have changed?
    Now, its creeping into every noon and cranny.

    You don’t believe me?
    Than just ask your Dog.
