Crowdsourcing Mornings: PetBot: Smartphone For Pets


Geek Alabama Crowdsourcing Mornings

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Pet owners find it difficult to be with their pets at all times. While owners are out of the house they cannot interact or engage with their pet. Even with a simple webcam, there is no way of ensuring that something is happening with your pet when you check in. Imagine if there was a way for your pet to check in with you instead!  PetBot is the first smart device that lets your pet send you a selfie and allows you to engage with your pet remotely. It captures pet moments at the right time and shares these moments with you when you want them. PetBot is the only product that uses “petificial intelligence” to detect, record, share and notify you when your pet is active. PetBot is for all pets and has been successfully trialed with dogs, cats, and even a rabbit!

Busy professionals and families often find that they have no meaningful way to interact with and care for their pets while they are away. PetBot was born in 2013 with the vision to improve the quality of life of pets in homes and in shelters around the world.  Their co-founders have years of pet training, pet care and technical experience including the development of machine learning and artificial intelligence that have been used to test the effectiveness of drugs on cancer. This technology has been included into PetBot to inform pet owners when their pets need them. Combined with years of innovation, business and finance experience, their team will provide petificial intelligence to pet owners across the world.
