MIT researchers have cracked accurate, wireless emotion detection - no wearables attached.
This is incredible. What's more, the results are more accurate than an industry standard, Microsoft's existing Emotion API, which is based on using computer vision techniques.
This non-invasive mood detection technology has a mind boggling array of applications.
Will we soon be able to tell how someone's day at work was as soon as they're in range of the home WiFi signal? Gauge a client before even seeing them?
The team successfully used the signals to measure and parse data on individual's hearts, with the ability to literally detect if someone's heart skips a beat.
This is a highly exciting technology; an original and unique breakthrough that has the power to affect how we live our lives every day. We're slowly exposing the secrets of the world, and ourselves.
Researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have developed “EQ-Radio,” a device that can detect a person’s emotions using wireless signals. By measuring subtle changes in breathing and heart rhythms, EQ-Radio is 87 percent accurate at detecting if a person is excited, happy, angry or sad — and can do so without on-body sensors.
