There Will Be A Time When EPU’s Are As Common Place As CPU’s and GPU’s, Emoshape Is At The Forefront.
Many believe there will come a time when humans interact with machines more often than they do other humans. Some believe that time is starting right now. How often are you using your smartphone or playing in VR versus spending time with another human being. Doom and gloom movies have portrayed a time where robots dominate the world. Many people have been afraid of artificial intelligence because it lacked the ability to take into consideration, emotions.
We all know that tone of voice, be it mom, dad, child or significant other, where something is definitely wrong, so we ask “What’s wrong”. Most of the time the other person says “nothing” but we pry until we find out. Imagine if a smart assistant like Alexa or Siri was able to notice something was off and asked you “what’s wrong”. Imagine having a tough day at the office and being able to unload to your Amazon Echo or Google Home device, or other AI, and it knows the exact recommendation to make you feel better.
This is what technology has struggled with for years, and Emoshape is working on now. Emoshape is on the cutting edge of emotions next frontier.
“The use of of emotion remains a fundamental need for humans, one that cannot be addressed by today’s emotion technology” the company says on their website.
Ray Kurzweil once said “Computers will possess emotions and personality” and Emoshape is taking us there.
Emoshape has created the emotions synthesis microchip (EPU). The chip is the backbone to making artificial intelligence found in self driving cars, personal assistants, robots, toys, IoT devices and other consumer electronics devices with:
- Human machine interaction
- Emotion speech synthesis
- Emotional awareness
- Machine emotional intimacy
- AI personality
- Machine learning and affective computing
Every significant industry that’s incorporating any kind of machine based AI today will be impacted by this technology. Imagine a smart assistant in a hospital hearing a cry or whimper and understanding that something is wrong. Imagine a VR game knowing that intense breathing on the users part is a signal of excitement or struggle. Imagine your self driving car being able to process your bad or good day and then tune the radio, lighting and drive to your emotional state. Imaging your smart assistant at home recognizing that a cry out “Help” or shouting “Help” may mean you need medical assistance where as just saying help could mean you just have a question.
All of this is possible with the technology that Emoshape is working on. The company is currently on their next generation of the EMU chip. For personal use the company is taking pre-orders for Exolife an emotional engine device featuring the EPU chip. You simply add the ExoLife device to your network and it will create a private cloud API inside the home which will be utilized by all connected devices giving your Alexa or Google Home device emotional intelligence. It can be also used in gaming which makes games and avatars emotionally intelligent. To experience the effect of emotional intelligence in gaming people who preorder ExoLife here, get the free version of their game Dream which takes full advantage of the EPU’s capability.
If you’re a developer or you just want to learn more about the future of emotional intelligence, you can meet Emoshape at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, January 9-12th, in Eureka Park, booth #53064 and check them out online at emoshape.com
