Emoshape Announces Production of the Emotions Processing Unit II

THE EMOTION SYNTHESIS ENGINE OF ROBOTS, AI & IoT will be produced with a microchip that enables an emotional response in AI, robots and consumer electronic devices.

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Emoshape announced the production of the EPU II representing a significant advancement for the purpose of Robotic, AI, Virtual Assistant and Gaming technologies. Mr. Levy Rosenthal, CEO of Emoshape and architect of the EPU comments that; "The growing presence of robotics and Artificial Intelligence in society at large means that meaningful emotional interaction is core to removing the barrier to widespread adoption. Emotion synthesis and the use of emotions remain a fundamental need for humans that cannot be addressed by today's AI technology."


The EPU is based on the eight primary emotions identified in the psycho-evolutionary theory. The ground-breaking EPU algorithms effectively enable machines to respond to stimuli in line with the eight primary emotions: anger, fear, sadness, disgust, surprise, anticipation, trust, and joy. This allows the intelligent machine to experience pain, pleasure, frustration and satisfaction, key to successful machine learning.

EPU-II, based on 32-bit load/store RISC architecture, allows a robot to experience more than 1.6 billion distinct emotional states. That's over 50 times more computational horsepower than the previous-generation product. The EPU present a new leap for AI (artificial intelligence) on all fronts especially in the realm of robotics, smart toys, self-driving cars, home automation, and other major electronic devices.

The Evaluation Kit provides an evaluation platform for the Emotion Processing Unit II. The evaluation board is a vehicle to test and evaluate the emotion synthesis functionality of the EPU II. Customers can use this board to get a head start on software development prior to the arrival of their own hardware.

The Emoshape EPU II and the Evaluation Kit will be available to a selected group of clients starting circa 1/03/2016. More information about the product and the company can be found at www.emoshape.com. Please enquire for further and detailed technical information.

The EPU II together with the Emoshape cloud service and the emotion profile graph (EPG), give the AI the capacity to develop a long-term unique emotional personality based on user interactions. Emoshape Ltd will deliver unparalleled user experiences based on innovative technology. The EPU II will be used, among other things, to teach technologies how to interact with humans in order to yield a favorable result.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
