How AI is getting more Emotional


"As AI advancements march forward, emotional intelligence is widely regarded as a key step in the development of the human-AI interface. It’s the stepping stone that propels a virtual assistant from a simple call and response aid, to something far greater – a companion, an assistant, something more than simply a robot. When a machine can understand a user’s emotional state, it leads to more natural responses and useful interactions, resulting in a better understanding of a user's actions."
