A friend sent me this message today
“Hola, I just saw an app that is facial recognition for dogs. You take their picture and register them. When they are lost a person takes a picture of the lost dog and it searches a data base for a match.”
I have to say I got very excited, what a fabulous idea. As soon as I got home I did a Search on ‘dog facial id’.
Imagine, you find a lost dog, why not a cat too. You take its picture, scan it in to some regional or even national database, and if the dog is registered you find its rightful home.
qué horror! I come to find out there are several of these programs out there!
how do they communicate, with whom do they communicate, do they share information, or must someone know of each app and search each one.
I just hate the prospect of thinking there is help only to find it is so cumbersome that no one will do it. OR What if I don’t know of all the possible databases to search and miss finding my dog by one unknown.
much more research is necessary!
