Scientists Working On Robot That Can Detect All Kinds Of Emotions In Hopes Of Helping Patients With Mental Health Disorders – CBS Miami

By daniellenierenberg

MIAMI (CBSMiami) Scientists are working to create a robot that can detect all kinds of emotions. They say the benefits could help patients with a range of mental health disorders.

The robot is called Abel, and it is learning to smile, snarl, and frown. Twenty motors under his artificial skin give the robot emotions just like us. Engineers hope someday Abel will be a friend for people with behavioral, social, or cognitive disorders like autism or Alzheimers.

We want Abel to know how people are feeling to keep them healthy, not just physically, but mentally and emotionally, researcher Lorenzo Cominelli said.

To make Abel look eerily real, engineers teamed up with special effects artist Gustav Hoegen. His company has created animatronics for Hollywood hits Star Wars and Jurassic Park.

Right now, someone has to wear sensors for the robot to recognize their emotions. The next step may seem like something out of science fiction. Researchers say they want to give Abel a human brain with the help of tissue taken from stem cells.

Organoids are basically an aggregate of stem cells which self-assemble and self-organize to resemble the structure and function of a mini-human organ, researcher Arti Ahluwalia said.

Scientists say that would allow Abel to read our expressions all on his own. And if theyre successful, expect the team and Abel to look a bit smug.

Researchers acknowledge they are years away from their goal, but they believe Abel will one day not only be able to recognize emotions on his own but be able feel them too.
