IBM

Guiding Eyes for the Blind & IBM
 
IBM is using data analytics, AI and the hybrid cloud to help more puppies become Guiding Eyes for the Blind.  IBM will demonstrate the use of a Smart Collar--an IoT sensor--on a puppy in training.  The collar measures biometric and environmental data, and emotional responses the pup experiences in real-life situations.  Data is uploaded to the IBM Cloud and married with comprehensive genetics, temperament, health, and training data--both structured and unstructured, on thousands of guide dogs.  Predictive analytics are applied to determine early on whether a puppy might benefit from modifications in training to improve their chances of success--or might be better suited for a career as another type of service dog or in law enforcement as a detection dog.  IBM's cognitive insights are helping discover the secrets behind successful guide dogs so that more people benefit from the independence, safety, and companionship these dogs provide.
