Soon your computer may say to you,
“You really should rest! You look tired — maybe you should take a nap.”
(Well, probably not exactly those words : )
A new, promising technology is making waves:
Computers that identify emotions — sadness, happiness — just by looking at facial expressions.
A handful of companies are working on developing this leading edge technology
(At this stage of development, it’s only used in certain areas (research being one of them.)
Within a few years it will be widely available; much like GPS is now.
Obvious users: people in gaming and marketing.
They want a play-by-play readout of a viewer/customer emotional journey.
But the possibilities are endless.
This promising technology can help doctors have an accurate reading of the pain level in a patient.
It can help autistic children who have trouble reading emotions on other peoples’ faces.
And it can be used in learning environments.
The future is here: computers with emotional intelligence.
