Stand-alone robot doll recognises human emotions.
A project led by Oscar Deniz at the University of Castilla-La-Mancha has developed a robot doll that can recognise emotions in human interlocutors. The really interesting fact, however, is that the doll is battery-powered and unconnected to the internet, the cloud or any such external environment. There are many reasons why stand-alone or autonomous AI like this may become prized in our society. The owner of the stand-alone AI can maintain his or her privacy. Hackers will also find it much harder to interfere. Truly autonomous AI will be a growing area.
