In a first, scientists at the Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute (CMU RI) have developed a computer system that can read a person’s body language in real time, a development that opens new and more natural ways for human-machine interaction.

Machines capable of understanding non-verbal communication would be a better fit for social tasks, for example, they will identify an individual’s mood and figure out if a person is too busy to be interrupted, writes Tech Explorist.

The technology could mark a significant advance in self-driving cars allowing them to work out when a pedestrian intends to cross the road, notes New Atlas.
