  • Rollercoaster shopping spree Amazon Is Working on a Device That Can Read Human Emotions A diagram in the patent filing says the technology can detect an abnormal emotional condition and shows a sniffling woman telling Alexa she’s hungry. The digital assistant, picking up that she has a cold, asks the woman if she would like a recipe for chicken soup.
    • At which point the woman responds “I’m Fine”, assistant: “But you sound…” woman “I’m FINE” ,  assistant: “But….” — it is about to go down so her boyfriend correctly grabs his keys and leaves before his girl destroys the tech.
    • A U.S. patent filed in 2017 describes a system in which voice software uses analysis of vocal patterns to determine how a user is feeling, discerning among “joy, anger, sorrow, sadness, fear, disgust, boredom, stress, or other emotional states.” The patent, made public last year, suggests Amazon could use knowledge of a user’s emotions to recommend products or otherwise tailor responses.
  • With E3 2 weeks away… it is time for OFR E3 Predictions!
    • Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order from Respawn Entertainment & maybe Titanfall 3, Xbox codenamed Project Scarlett, XCloud, HoloLens 2, Gears 5, Halo Infinite, a new Forza title. Instead of a new Battlefield and Star Wars Battlefront game – a new Battlefield Bad Company(has been my prediction for a number of years only to be let down)!
    • Sony will win
