Facial recognition software to find lost dogs (and cats) — 8 Comments

  1. This is so awesome. I cannot wait until this is worldwide and available for all phones and for dogs and cats alike. The sooner that these sites are developed, the less heartache there will be for people and they’re furry family members and also there will be less loss of animals lives. Time is of the essence! Kudos to the man with this idea and all of the people working to make it happen. God bless all of you!

  4. I agree with Ruth. I think it is very useful especially because the software can be downloaded as an “app” to a smart phone, which makes it very accessible and its use is immediate and easy.

    I guess it relies on both the companion animal’s owner photographing his cat or dog and the shelters doing the same thing. Is that correct? If so it means getting the shelter organizations onboard.

  5. I think it will be useful, because it can actually be hard to identify your own pet, especially if he’s frightened or stressed. I remember being nervous about this fact hen another black cat hopped the fence into our yard. After one cat climbed the fence out of the yard I was left wondering if the growling, snarling, unapproachable cat before me was Monty– or was it Monty who jumped the fence? I honestly wasn’t sure if I had Monty in front of me or a feral cat (probably related to him) and therefore nearly his twin. It turned out to be Monty. He was easier to ID after he calmed down. He is microchipped so I he ended up in a shelter I would hope that would save him, but it doesn’t always work– the chip can shift and be misses when they scan for it. Also, there has been talk of a risk to the animal from the microchips. This recognition software is non-invasive. It’s just one more tool to help reunite a human with his or her furry companion.
