Soul Machines, a New Zealand-based start-up has successfully built a Virtual chatbot called ‘Naida', that does not only portray human emotions but also read their facial expressions.

The main aim behind this creation is to take the chatbot service to a new level by humanizing the interaction between the human and machine.

Soul machine has termed Nadia’s capability to read the human facial expression as its ‘emotional intelligence or EI’. Naida can observe facial expression of users through webcams. This chatbot emotionally connects with users. Both AI and EI can learn through its experience.

When user change their facial expression while speaking to Nadia, she will instantly change and adjust her answer in order to suit the user’s current emotional state of mind.

Mark Sugar, a professor at the university of Auckland and CEO of Soul Machines, he is the main pillar of Nadia concept. Already he won many academic awards for Avatars and King Kong for facial expressions capturing tactics.

The new creation is specifically for disabled people who improve their abilities, funded by Australian Government developed by most talented Cate Blanchett.

Users can access the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) for more information easily without experiencing any complication involved by the disabled users.

Soul Machines already started many projects related to chatbots for other industries.
