Scientists have developed a machine that can read your emotions – even when your facial expression remains constant. How does it work?
Device Can Read Emotions By Bouncing Wireless Signals Off Your Body
“Emotions can be tricky enough for humans to read, let alone machines, but a new system can predict people’s feelings with 87 percent accuracy by bouncing wireless signals off them, researchers say.”
Scientists Can Use WiFi To Read Your Emotions
“Emotions that are not reflected in facial expressions or speech remain hidden. Now, a research group at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) has built a system called EQ-Radio that can identify emotions using radio signals from a wireless router whether or not a person is speaking or showing their emotions with facial expressions.”
How machines are learning to read your mood
“Now: developing technology that can better identify your own emotions. At a time when people are concerned about what data can track and how it can be sold, it is an advance that clearly raises concerns. But it may also yield some important benefits.”
