A New Smart Collar Can Translate Your Dog’s Barks

A new hi-tech device could help you better understand your dog. The artificial intelligence powered dog collar can detect five emotions in canines by monitoring their barks using voice recognition technology. The collar, created by a South Korean start-up, can tell owners if their animals are happy, relaxed, anxious, angry or sad through a smartphone app. The company says after gathering different types of barks to analyze dogs’ emotions, they developed a proprietary algorithm based on a database of more than 10-thousand samples from 50 breeds of dogs. It’s also a fitness tracker, giving feedback on your dog’s physical activity and rest.
