Have you ever come across a dog on the street and wondered what breed it is? Well, now there’s an app for that! Dog Scanner is its name. It is an application that allows you to easily identify dog breeds from a simple photo. In this article, we are going to break down this app for all dog lovers. Follow the leader!
What is Dog Scanner?
Dog Scanner is a mobile app available on Android and iOS that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to identify dog breeds. All you have to do is take a photo of the dog you want to identify, upload it to the app, and you’re done! In a few seconds, you will have all the information on the breed of the dog in question.
The application presents itself as a true pocket encyclopedia capable of identifying more than 370 different dog breeds. Whether you come across a Siberian Husky or a Chihuahua on your walk, Dog Scanner will recognize them.
In addition to identification, Dog Scanner offers detailed information about each breed, including temperament, common health issues, exercise needs, and more. The app also provides breed-specific care tips, helping you understand how to pamper your furry friend.
And that’s not all! Dog Scanner also has a community of passionate users where you can share photos, grooming tips, and more.
Finally, it is important to mention that the free version of the Dog Scanner app has a number of advertisements, which can be annoying at times. However, a Premium version is available (for a few euros) for those who wish to enjoy an ad-free experience.
How does Dog Scanner work?
This application uses what is called machine learning, a branch of artificial intelligence. Basically, Dog Scanner has been trained to recognize different breeds of dogs through thousands of images. The app analyzes the characteristics of the photo you upload – the dog’s face shape, ear size, coat color, etc. – and compares it to its database to determine the breed of the dog. It’s that simple!
Is the app reliable?
We put the app to the test with several pictures of dogs, including a Great Dane, Australian Shepherd, Jack Russell, and Spitz. Overall, the app performed well, with just one error. Instead of identifying the Great Dane, the app identified a Fila Brasileiro. We don’t know why. Perhaps the quality of the photo was not optimal, or perhaps the posture of the dog in the photo was not clear enough…
In short, as you may have understood, this application is far from infallible, but we can hope that it will continue to improve in the future. Wait and see…
