Yet another reason to love New Zealand: Doggelgänger Human to Canine Pairing Software
This program was developed using NEC’s facial recognition software to pair real homeless pets with potential adopters. They believe that since owners and pets tend to look alike anyway, maybe some people would be motivated to adopt a pet if they found their “doggelgänger”. So far it’s only available in New Zealand. As Chance and Portabella will tell you, we’d adopt a bunch of pets if we could!
