Amazon has patented artificial intelligence that can recognize the user’s feelings, as well as his mood, by voice.
The company hopes that in the future, technology can be integrated into the voice assistant of Alexa. Although technology will be able to determine the state of human health, but representatives of the company emphasize that it will not be able to replace the doctor.
The neural network will only be able to detect cold fever or cough in the user and offer him to order medication. Analyze the mood of the user’s artificial intelligence will be based on the voice and the history of its browser. After examining the pages that the user visited, the neural network will determine its state and ask what its owner wants to do and advise you to watch a movie.
Xiaomi has released a mask for improving sleep quality called Easy Air Brain Wave Sleeping Eye Mask.
The device has a look of a mask and promotes quicker immersion in sleep and a better rest of the body. At the heart of a smart accessory – the technology of artificial intelligence to analyze the brain activity of the owner.
The obtained data are analyzed by artificial intelligence algorithms in real time in order for the mask to play the appropriate music. The volume of the melody gradually decreases when a person falls asleep, thus relaxing the brain, and in the morning as smoothly increases. The mask works based on the analysis of sleep phases, so as not to cause stress for the body, as with the use of a normal alarm clock. As a result of the use of such a mask, a person must feel relaxed and cheerful.
The Snapchat mobile app has added custom filters for cats that will work on complementary reality technology.
Previously, Snapchat Face Detection Technology was able to apply filters only to people, and sometime this feature was added to some breeds of dogs. Currently, cats owners will be able to use Snapchat Lenses filters for their favorite animals.
With filters you can decorate your pet with hats, eyeglasses, and slices of bread.
Recall that a few weeks ago, the company announced that the number of daily active users fell by 3 million to 188 million from April to June.
French programmers have developed a mobile application called Open Food Facts, which will help buyers learn more about the product they are going to buy.
They called their development “Wikipedia”. The user must scan the composition of the product, and the app will evaluate it in two parameters: the usefulness of its composition and the degree of technological processing. Developers believe that based on these two indicators, the buyer will be able to choose the most useful food. For example, the smaller the product of the harmful ingredients (too much salt or sugar) and the less he was subjected to technological treatment – the better he is for health.
Product data from the European Food Safety Authority. Users will also be able to add the product themselves if it is not in the database. At the moment, the application contains information on 662,000 products.
Salo is one of the favorite products of Ukrainians, but it costs a lot of time and money to produce it.
Therefore, students of Agrarian University in Sumy developed a fat substitute, for the production of which no need to kill pigs and which is much cheaper in production. The new artificial bacon will consist of oil and gelatin.
The project management and the formulation of the original product was managed by the associate professor of the nutrition department Dmytro Bidyuk. He noted that artificial bacon can be anything to taste, for example, it can be made salty, pepper, add the taste and aroma of various spices. And also artificial bacon can be sour, sweet and have a different degree of fat.
Dmitry Bidyuk also said that artificial bacon is a decent alternative to natural: the taste is almost indistinguishable from genuine fat, and no harmful substances in it. As well as artificial lard, vegetarians can eat.
Facebook has introduced new opportunities for posting photos to their users.

During an experiment at the University of Southern Australia, scientists managed to teach artificial intelligence to determine the type of personality in the motion of the eye.
Eyes can tell a lot about a person. They signal certain thoughts and feelings, and other people deliberately or unknowingly read this information during personal communication. Neuropsychologist Tobias Letters and his colleagues asked 50 volunteers to fill out questionnaires containing information on five main features of personality: openness to new experiences, conscientiousness, extraversion, benevolence and neuroticism. Each participant also wore a headset that tracks eye movements during everyday activities.
Then artificial intelligence analyzed the data. According to scientists, he was able to identify certain patterns and compare them with the main psychological profiles. So far, high-precision technology has not achieved, but the authors of the project have noted that this is a significant step forward. The result was an average of 15% more precisely the random comparison.
“This study provides new opportunities for the development of robots and computers so that they can become more natural and better interpret the human’s social signals,” said Tobias Letchier.
