Paying with your face
Facial recognition has existed for decades, but only now is it accurate enough to be used in secure financial transactions. The new versions use deep learning, an artificial-intelligence technique that is especially effective for image recognition because it makes a computer zero in on the facial features that will most reliably identify a person. Technology from Face++ is already being used in several popular apps. It is possible to transfer money through Alipay, a mobile payment app used by more than 120 million people in China, using only your face as credentials. Meanwhile, Didi, China?s dominant ride-hailing company, uses the Face++ software to let passengers confirm that the person behind the wheel is a legitimate driver. https://www.technologyreview.c

A wearable that helps you with EQ
The tone of a conversation can drastically affect its emotional intent - conveying sadness, aggression or happiness through nuanced changes in pitch and intonation. While many of us may pick these up naturally throughout life, some people find this particularly difficult. An AI with the ability to navigate through nuanced social cues could lead to an improvement in the quality of life for these people. This can already be done with a Samsung Simband, a wearable device which collects and displays this information. http://www.wired.co.uk/article/mits-artificial-intelligence-could-solve-social-miscommunication
