Coincidentally, Emo Spark is also the name of our office punk band. This Indiegogo campaign caught our attention because Emo Spark is the first artificial intelligence console. The three inch cube connects to your Wi-Fi and will begin to study you. A camera watches your face for emotional cues and may change color, put on some happy tunes or offer to show you a video that might cheer you up. The AI is connected to Wikipedia and Freebase and can answer questions on over 39 million topics. It isn’t the type of AI that people should start worrying about, unless the machines are planning to cripple us emotionally.
