My CISC 120 classes will have the privilege of meeting guest speaker Lorraine Trapani from IBM Watson and Keaton her trained guide dog.
The students will learn about IBM’s New2Blue program and the partnership between IBM Watson and Guiding Eyes for the Blind (GEB). IBM Watson is collecting a lot of statistical data on puppies to help GEB determine, which dogs will pass training and go on to become a guide dog.
Here are a few videos that talk about a couple of great puppies named Jackson and TJ. These puppies were trained to be guide dogs with the help of volunteer puppy raiser’s like Lorraine.
