A new smartwatch app can predict moods and tell you how to handle social situations (newsweek)

MIT researchers have developed a wearable to help people who suffer from social anxiety.

Researchers have developed a smartwatch integrated with an artificial intelligence system that can serve as a kind of coach in social situations, particularly for people who suffer from social anxiety or Asperger syndrome.

A paper published Wednesday by researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) describes how the wearable AI detects the tone of a conversation through audio and physiological data in order to determine the mood of the speaker. This information can then be used to better understand social situations.
