AI is getting more in touch with your emotions

August 17th, 2019 at 2:06 am » Comments Off

EmoNet, a neural network model, was accurately able to pair images to 11 emotion categories. The EmoNet research study demonstrates how AI can measure emotional significance. Artificial intelligence might one day start communicating our emotions better than we do. EmoNet, neural network model developed by researchers at the University of Colorado and Duke University, was […]



How hospitals are using AI to save their sickest patients and curb ‘alarm fatigue’
