Technology that can read your emotions
A vast number of tech companies are now offering "emotion analysis" products. These products are designed to analyse an individual's face in order to determine how they are feeling. The emotion detection system is a mix between two technologies, the first is a computer vision which sees a person's face and detects its features. The next is through AI which analyses this information to determine how this person is feeling. https://futurism.com/the-byte/emotion-detect-system-getting-job

Preventing Extinction Using Artificial Intelligence and Citizen Science
Wild Me is introducing an innovative program where citizen science and high technology are combined to fight the extinction of wildlife. Microsoft AI is the technology that uses the algorithm to distinguish the pattern of an animal?s physical appearance, for instance, skin pattern and scars. This program would not be completed without the help of citizen science and researchers who actively seek the existence of the living creatures and record them. For example, the data shows that Wild Me succeeded in identifying 10 times more whale sharks than ever recorded. https://www.wildme.org/

A new way to evaluate credit history
The fintech startup Petal, in conjunction with WebBank, is offering a credit card to the estimated 65 million people in the US who have insufficient credit history to qualify for a traditional credit card. Instead of relying on credit scores, Petal uses cashflow underwriting based on machine learning. It considers how much money consumers make, the bills they pay on a monthly basis, and trends in volatility in their income and expenses. www.americanbanker.com/news/petal-webbank-launch-card-for-credit-invisibles
