A lot of people talk to their pets; many have full-on conversations.
New research suggests that A.I. might help us better communicate with animals. A new poll asked, “If you had a pet, and A.I. enabled you to have conversations with it, how likely would you be to do so?”
Overall, 33% of people would be “very likely” to listen to their pets in this way. Another 29% said they’re “somewhat” interested. 25% of people are NOT into this, and another 14% of people aren’t sure.
They say dogs are MAN’S best friend, and even if that’s outdated, maybe that explains this: Men are MORE interested in talking to pets than women. 65% of men said they’re likely to do it, compared to just 58% of women.
Young adults are more intrigued than old folks. 19% of people 65 and older say they want no part of this, which is by far the highest of any age group.
