Submission + - Dogs trained to use computers (

Canine at the Keyboard writes: "Austrian researchers have successfully trained dogs to use computers, according to a study published online in Animal Cognition. Friederike Range and colleagues from the University of Vienna in Austria have shown for the first time that dogs can classify complex color photographs and place them into categories in the same way that humans do, and the dogs successfully demonstrate their learning through the use of computer automated touch-screens, eliminating potential human influence. Considering that million monkeys at keyboards made the Internet, I wonder what contribution the dogs would make."

The brain is a wonderful organ; it starts working the moment you get up in the morning, and does not stop until you get to work.
