i mean, i get that you don't want to pay your workers...


suppose a dog can be trained to detect ovarian cancer in urine samples... wouldn't it be a better idea to train a machine to detect the signal?

i'm sure it's not like they haven't been trying... all the people at MIT and so on...

but otago wants to train dogs.

mmm hmm.

i'm trying to think how that goes...

does a pathologist train the dog? to reward it when it agrees with the judgment of the pathologist and not reward it when it doesnt?

like training the rock and mine detector of... oh... yawn... the 1960's?


then when the dog gets it wrong oh well.

like when the surgeons from sydney directing the surgery from their x-box controller accientally... go offline.

system update.

5G takeover

that kind of a thing?


not slightly plausible. at all.

suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure. let's invest $250,000 in training a dog.

that's a terrific idea for the development of medicine in nz.

well done, there.
