This Smart Doll That Runs On A AI Chip Can Read Your Child’s Emotion
BOFFINS have created a creepy doll fitted with an AI chip that scans kids’ faces to read their emotions and become their best pal. The lifelike doll can recognize eight emotions including surprise and happiness, and adjusts how it behaves accordingly.
It runs on an AI chip and carries out emotion recognition through facial-recognition technology, via a camera hidden in the doll’s mouth, rather than the internet.
Project leader Oscar Deniz at the University of Castilla-La Mancha in Ciudad Real, Spain, said: “In the near future, we will see a myriad of eyes everywhere that will not just be watching us, but trying to help us.”
The doll has been designed to address privacy concerns raised after it emerged similar smart dolls were transmitting information online.
