Researcher Oscar Deniz at the University of Castilla-La Mancha in Ciudad Real, Spain has built a smart doll, fitted with an artificial intelligent chip that can recognize eight human emotions, marking an important step towards the world where everyday gadgets will come equipped with basic AI capabilities.

Deniz’s chip doesn’t use an external Cloud-based server to save and process the data, which ensures that the smart toy, unlike many of its predecessors, doesn’t leave privacy at risk, notes New Scientist.

Over the last decade, AI has made huge advances with tech giants such as Apple, Google, Facebook and others pumping huge funds for research and development, writes Financial Times. Much better computing power and availability of huge datasets have fueled this race making AI adept in identifying objects, lip-reading, taking basic decisions and more.
