He chats with Dr. Melody Moore Jackson, director of the Animal-Computer Interaction (ACI) Lab and BrainLab at the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech, and a trailblazer in researching ways that technology can enhance communication between humans and animals. For proof, look no further than her dog Laser.
