New Device Identifies People's Emotions Using Wireless Signals

Researchers at MIT's Computer Science and Artifical Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) have created a device they call the EQ-Radio, which can pick up emotions including excitement, sadness, anger and happiness with around 87% accuracy. The system trains on a person’s individual emotions before attempting to guess their current state, all without any on-body monitors. The research was led by MIT professor Dina Katabi.
