The Internet of Things (IoT) involves the interconnection of everyday objects with each other through the Internet. This opens the door to a greater interconnection between different types of objects and devices, but it also generates a more complex communication between people and everyday technological objects.

The objects connected to the IoT can be classified into three groups depending on their function: those that function as sensors, those that are responsible for carrying out active actions and those that combine both functions. Currently, the IoT is already applied in household devices, home smart devices, robotics or vehicles. However, the challenge of this new technological horizon lies in achieving a more bidirectional connection, making objects able to empathize with human behavior.

What it is about

Artificial empathy is the application based on facial recognition technology. It allows technological devices to capture human emotions. A video camera is embedded in any object or device. It is possible to capture and store data of the 6 basic emotions and 4 metrics in real-time. The devices adapt to the states of mind of the users, performing actions or communicating according to the emotional information recorded.
