The Database of Humantouch - MIDAS

AI that is able to recognize complex emotions by expressive touch

This action is the starting point for a compassionate cohabitant. It has been scientifically proven that humans have the ability to recognize and communicate emotions through an expressive touch. A new research proved that force-sensitive screens through machine learning are also able to recognise the user's emotions. The findings of this research was the starting point for Midas.

Midas is a conceptual design. Targeted to harvest a global database of human emotions expressed through touch. By giving up our unique emotional movement machines can gain emotional intelligence leading to an equal communicational platform. Through adding touch as an emotional receptor to ai we upload our unspoken ethical code into this new lifeform.
