Amazon Alexa May Know How You’re Feeling
Alright, hey guys, Mark Phillips with Simply spoken This is the SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefingback again to talk about a recent announcement that we think is pretty cool. And this is all about the research that some of the folks in the Amazon Alexa AI unit are experimenting with to use artificial intelligence, and things like Alexa to detect emotions like happiness, sadness, anger, and, you know, part of the, the thing that they’re doing is they’re looking at kind of speech and language used and sort of how those signals can indicate things like depression, and they’re using it with soldiers that have returned and veterans that have returned, which are at a higher rate of risk for suicide. And so I think the, these veterans with PTSD, we can understand some of their, their mental health from the sound of their voice. And that is, again, rocket science cool. We’re we’re beginning to see so much work in the healthcare space where we can detect things like emotion and other other kind of voice biomarkers that can tell us about cardiac health or just so much that we’re beginning to understand about the predictive power of the voice as a signal. And so of course, it’s a very non invasive signal. So you don’t have to, you know, have a any sort of invasive procedures to do the detection voices available. And so, kudos to Amazon for doing the research. They’re on that be using the voice to do that work, and we think that’s pretty cool. Alright guys, that’s a wrap for the SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefing. Thanks.
