Melody Jackson, a computer scientist at Georgia Tech, has been outfitting service dogs with computerized vests, so that in an emergency they can find another human and pull a mechanical lever on the vest that triggers an audio message: My handler needs you to come with me! When people hear this for the first time, “they jump back 3 feet, because the dog is talking,” Jackson says, laughing. The dog can also do other tricks with its wearable, like triggering an SOS alert with GPS coordinates. A search-and-rescue dog could do the same. It’s all part of a curious new field called animal-computer interaction.
