Emoshape – Emotional Processing Unit Microchip Breakthrough Has Given Emotional Awareness to 500 Artificial Intelligent Devices
This technology will essentially allow a robotic pet to create a completely unique personality depending on a number of factors, which will ultimately mean that no two have the exact same personality.
New York September 23st, 2015 - Emoshape (www.emoshape.com) announced that over 500 AI devices worldwide with the EmoSPARK technology have recorded and relayed 15,000 emotional records to Emoshape through the use of the company's emotional processing unit.
Company CEO Patrick Levy Rosenthal had this to say on the most recent development: "After receiving the 15,000 pieces of data representing more than 150K emotional impulses, which was imperative to our operation, we have now taken the next step in development. Emoshape are talking to expert Asian manufacturers who specialise in robotic pets. Our aim is to integrate our EPU into their technology, which we believe will take its AI to the next level. This technology will essentially allow a robotic pet to create a completely unique personality depending on a number of factors, which will ultimately mean that no two have the exact same personality."
The core technology of the EmoSPARK, the emotion processing unit (EPU), allows the cube the capacity to feel real human emotions and reflect it in its behaviour.
The chip allows AI technology to experience one of eight human emotions (anger, fear, sadness, disgust, surprise, anticipation, trust and joy), which generate levels of pain, pleasure and frustration and react to it with desires in a similar way that a human would.
The EmoSPARK cube allows users to see the impact of the development of the system's emotional state. By reading its user's facial emotions and by picking up on not only the wording, but also soon tone of voice, the cube can relay how it feels to its user.
The EPU has an emotion profile graph (EPG), which allows the AI the capacity to develop a long-term personality. The current data that has reached Emoshape is allowing them to edit how the chip works when it is being spoken to either positively or negatively.
Just like human development when it comes to our emotions, the EPG has a learning curve that decreases over time and eventually becomes almost non-existent unless a high amount of a particular emotion is experienced. The early experience of emotions are pivotal to long-term emotional development.
