9:30am – 10:30am CT

Millions of humans see their pets in the same vein as they do their children. So when it comes to technological advancements in the $63 billion pet market, investment in technology is inevitable. Can technology enhance the emotional bond between dogs and humans, and is there a benefit to that bond for both species?
It’s possible that via pet wearables and IoT we will soon be able to track our dogs moods & energy levels, helping us cater to our dogs’ needs, thus “speaking dog”. You will learn about the emotional connection between dogs & humans, the role that technology will play to improve communication and understanding between humans and dogs, and possibly help humans “speak dog."
