    The Need for Standards
    Through technology we can create very interesting interactions between people and animals. However, the lack of standards means individuals who work really hard, but are isolated in their problem solving, come up with schemes that they cannot complete. For example, the Crow Vending Machine, as featured in a TED talk, is an interesting idea, but I spoke with the researchers who supplied the crows, and the machine never worked in practice. The problem with the crow vending machine is not the idea, but the lack of man-power and time. Standards allow for multiple researcher's work to mesh and produce larger results than any one person can create alone. You can download the Ver. 1.0 draft of the standards embedded below, here.
