We had a blast in class today. We had the honor of meeting IBM Ai Jackie. Her Puppy Raiser, Lorraine Trapani, an IBM Watson executive, came to speak to my Marist College technology students.
IBM Ai Jackie was super good in class while Lorraine shared about IBM’s partnership with Guiding Eyes for the Blind (GEB). She informed us that Jackie wears a smart collar that collects data on the pup’s behavior and movements.
The Ai data is then transferred from the smart collar to her cellphone via a special app and then uploaded to IBM Watson for review. This new IBM Ai process helps GEB determines which puppies will succeed in training, as a future guide dog.
IBM Ai Jackie is a rockstar pup wherever she goes, as she has even met with the U. S. Senators in Washington DC.(more…)
