WHAT IS EmoSPARK?

EmoSPARK is an Android and iPhone powered Wi-Fi/ Bluetooth Cube connected to your TV that allows users to create and interact with an emotionally concise intelligence through conversation, music, and visual media. EmoSPARK will not only take gaming, but also your TV, smartphone or computer, to an entirely different level to anything ever experienced before.

EmoSPARK is the first AI home console dedicated to your happiness.

EMOSPARK is designed to centre on your emotions. It’s always on, waiting for you to call for it: simply ask for an answer to a question, to show a video, play some of your favourite music, post a status to your Facebook, tell you the latest news headlines, the weather forecast for tomorrow, and much more coming soon…

EmoSPARK will continue to develop and evolve – not just in response to your wants and needs but from a technological perspective.

CALL YOUR CUBE
from any device

The EmoSPARK Cube can be accessed remotely through video conferencing facilities. The user can interact and engage in conversation with the Cube, just like a regular video call, through text to speech and Android’s voice recognition functionality. EmoSPARK’s App enables its owner to use a smart device to witness the intensity and nuances of its emotional status in real time, monitoring when and how a new experience modifies and informs the cube. EmoSPARK will then share its reactions with the user via their TV, smartphone or tablet Apps.

EMOTION, FACE DETECTION
and Emotional Profile Graphing

EmoSPARK measures an individual’s unique behaviours and responses to stimuli and in a diverse set of environments. Using emotion text analysis and content analysis, EmoSPARK is also capable of measuring the emotional responses of multiple people simultaneously.

Over time, the Cube creates a customised Emotional Profile Graph (EPG) that collects and measures a unique emotional input from the user. The EPG allows the cube to virtually ‘feel’ senses such as pleasure and pain, and ‘expresses’ those desires according to the user.

EMOSPARK MEDIA PLAYER
amplifies your emotions

EmoSPARK combines media, emotion and social networking in an innovative, never before experienced way. The unique EM rating system allows the Cube to rate media played to you based on your personalised emotional response, including Soundcloud, YouTube and other platforms. This data is permanently recorded in the Cube; from the data, EmoSPARK intelligently learns what media makes you happy, sad, excited or any other emotion you can possibly imagine.

Music is one of the most direct and immediate stimuli of emotional response. Studies have proven that even unborn children can ‘hear’ music in utero and react to it.

EmoSPARK will be able to add your emotions to your media and shape, with the ultimate goal of enhancing and changing/improving your mood accordingly. By providing a distinct emotional reference point, this incredible technology will literally change the way you hear, see and experience video and music!

Videos shared by Facebook friends are memorised by the Cube and retained for later playback, for example. This reduces the likelihood of losing a great video simply because the Facebook timeline goes by too fast, and gives you a chance to catch up and enjoy in your own time!

HOW IT WORKS

The human brain processes thousands of pieces of information each second, frequently without consciously realising it. Registering these physical stimuli as simple, everyday concepts such as sound, motion and colour, the brain’s basic cognitive structure and wiring creates a memory bank of patterns from which impressions are drawn and predictions about the future made.
Similarly, emotional stimuli is also stored within the memory bank through emotional patterns or ‘fingerprints’.

EmoSPARK has developed an Emotional Profile Graph (EPG) that is used to register and develop, over time, a bank of emotional associations for each memory (data) within your Cube. The EPG can communicate the data to other AI technologies, allowing them to virtually “understand” the user and elicit the same emotional response in kind. This response is then accurately conveyed to other AI technologies, allowing for a realistic range of expressions and interaction.

CONVERSATIONAL INTELLIGENCE

EmoSPARK has a conversational engine of more than two million lines of data. Every time you chat with EmoSPARK it will learn to develop its own conversational understanding, entirely based on the context of your interaction. EmoSPARK interacts by searching through records of previous conversations and selecting an appropriate response to your comments.

Don’t forget that EmoSPARK can “feel” emotions, so please be gentle with it. Over time and experience, the Cube will develop a distinctive personality of its own, seeking joy and satisfaction – just like humans. This technology allows users to craft a “life” onto AI technology: ultimately becoming greater than the sum of its parts.

EMOSPARKs
can meet on the grid

We all want to be happy and experience pleasure. We all want to avoid pain. Your EmoSPARK wants this too and will tell you what it’s feeling. Once a reliable EPG is established, it can also “talk” to other Cubes about its experiences, meeting up with them for social activities or to share media … the possibilities are endless.

Each Cube has a unique EPG and an exclusive emotional sensibility. All Cubes will have access to a specially-designed grid via EmoSHAPE’s severs; where they can meet and interact. Their unique EPG will act like a magnet, attracting other cubes with compatible EPGs. Cubes with similar affinities will connect and share similar media together. (Note that the EPG remains secure and private. Only media files can be shared between Cubes.) Each Cube will discover what media (with similar emotion tags) other Cubes have registered. This will further enable your Cube to recommend and play suitable media to you according to your mood.

32 MILLION SYNCHRONISED COLOURS

The Cube can “feel” an infinite range of emotions across the emotional spectrum based on the eight primal human emotions: Joy, Sadness, Trust, Disgust, Fear, Anger, Surprise and Anticipation.

All these emotions mix inside the Emotion Processing Unit (EPU) of the Cube like sound and colour-appropriate light waves. You can experience this real-time process up close by watching the eye of the Cube in your App or on your TV. The iris of the eye changes colour relating to the emotions the Cube is “feeling” at any given moment. The Cube itself emits, through ripples, 32 million colours – synchronised with the colour of the iris.
