Interactive, Emotion-Detecting Robot Developed 58

cylonlover writes "A team of Cambridge University researchers have now developed a system that can not only detect a user's emotional state, but can also make expressive responses of its own. Using a robotic likeness of the godfather of the programmable computer, Charles Babbage, the team has hooked the system up to a driving simulator and created a computerized driving companion and navigator that reacts to the driver in much the same way as a human passenger."

    No, we need hidden sensors in our glasses capable of telling us secret things that we cannot detect in the real world:

    "She's being sarcastic, she didn't really mean that."

    "She's really mad, even if she says she ain't"

    "By 'nothing' she meant you did a major screw-up"


If in any problem you find yourself doing an immense amount of work, the answer can be obtained by simple inspection.
