You might have thought that the concept of a machine that can emote was pure science fiction. Not so – emotionally cognisant technology is right here, right now it seems. And who do we have to thank for this amazing breakthrough in the field of artificial intelligence, MIT, NASA, Google? No, the company that has smashed through pre-conceived notions of the limits of AI is…Trend Micro!
A PR missive pinged through to ZDNet UK this morning summarising the security company's OfficeScan™ 8.0 technology reads thus:
“Just like our emotional intelligence sends us warning signals when we’re faced with a situation where the outcome is likely to be negative for the second time running, this security technology now combines near-genius algorithms with the basic emotional intelligence of the human brain”
Wow – I hope someone has forwarded this to the Nobel Foundation.
