If you have pets you probably already have a way to communicate with them but could you imagine if they had a way to communicate with you? I hang out with my doggies all day so I talk to them all day and yes, they talk to me as well. We notice everything about furry kidz because they can’t speak but now, scientists say within about 10 years with the help of AI our pets will be able to speak to us. I wonder what my baby boy was thinking when I made him wear my sunglasses.
Scientists say they are learning how to translate your pets vocalizations and facial expressions into something we can understand with the help of artificial intelligence. Some advances include an AI system that listens in on marmoset monkeys to decipher how they communicate with each other. Another AI system reads a sheep’s face to determine whether the animal is in pain. How awesome would that be? I wonder what my baby Natti would be saying the day I met her. She was so scared and terrified and so underweight.
The biggest heartbreak for us as a furry kidz parent is not knowing if our baby’s are in pain or sick. How beautiful will it be when we can take care of our pets they way they take care of us? Finally, an AI I totally approve.
Knowing my kidz they’ll say stuff like “Mom You’re not wearing that are you?” or “Mom, Natti stepped in poop again” or “Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, MOMMMMM!…hi.” I can hardly wait! ~grace
