Tech Unbound Podcast with the GVU Center

How do dogs get jobs? Well first they have to go to dog school, but not every dog makes the grade. Finding out if canines have the right temperament to become service animals or train for other jobs takes time and money. 

On this episode of Tech Unbound, Ceara Byrne, Ph.D. student in computer science, shares how her team can predict the suitability of service animals by using smart dog toys. Yes, that’s right, dogs are getting their own smart devices to help them get ready for the job market. The research is poised to save millions of dollars in training costs.
