Finding Rover app adapts the same facial recognition used for humans to dogs (and soon, cats) in hopes of human-pooch reunions

Anyone who’s lived with a cat or a dog can tell you that their face would be unmistakable to them in a crowd. John Polimeno, realized this when he was sitting in a coffee shop and looking at all the lost pet posters. He also had a deeply personal memory of a lost black labrador that he spent days putting up posters about, with his children crying in the back seat of the car. All this, and two-plus years working with The University of Utah software development center, led to Finding Rover, the ultimate app for finding lost dogs.
