23 Jul Scientists Can Now Detect Heartbeat and Human Emotion Through Wi-Fi
News last Saturday reports that scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have found a way to use Wi-Fi and artificial intelligence (AI) to track a person’s heartbeat and emotional state.
Scientists first designed an algorithm that specifically measures heart rate by reflecting radio frequency (RF) signals on people. The new technology also comes with learning capability called EQ radio that analyzes human heartbeat and makes assertions to create a better sense of their current emotions.
With the advent of this device, it can be used for emergency situations. For instance, if anyone at home is suffering a stroke, the AI device can employ the necessary protocol to save that person’s life.
However, like other advanced technology, it can also be used to steal personal health information if it falls into the wrong hands. There are many possibilities for this technology, indicating uses far beyond non-invasive diagnosis.
