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.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
