If Animals Could Talk

DogsDon’t you wish your pet could talk to you? Well, that’s an invitation to flirt with disaster if you’ve got a cat. They’re not going to sugar-coat anything for the sake of politeness or protecting your fragile ego. On the flip-side, if you’ve got a Labrador, you could be cooking meth in the garage and your four-legged friend thinks you’re the reason the sun rises and sets.

Looking beyond the crazy daydreams,  researchers think they could use artificial intelligence to translate barks, growls, and howls of dogs into a language we understand. Be careful for what you wish. Many of us can’t handle the truth of what our trusted domesticated animals may think. Other people may need to hear it.

Not too long ago, I heard about an app that can explain why a baby is crying: diaper change, food, sleep, etc. So it’s not far-fetched that something like this can be developed for an animal. A full life does not encompass an app for chatting with dogs and understanding babies but it certainly does help facilitate communication. Can’t we all use a leg-up in that department?
