Scientists develop dog bark-to-speech program


Apple did not release a dog bark-to-human speech device yesterday, but scientists in Hungary have developed something close to it. They’ve come up with a computer program that, 43 percent of the time, correctly identified a dog’s bark to mean “stranger,” “fight,” “walk,” “alone,” “ball” and “play.” Forty-three percent might not seem like a lot, but it’s apparently a hell of a lot better than what people can do.
