True Emoji is a very interesting AI-powered app available on the App Store for iOS devices. This app can read your expressions and use them to generate custom animated characters also known as Emotion Interchange Formats or simply EIFs.

In other words, as its name suggests, True Emoji translates your real emotions into personalized animated emoticons.

True Emoji also brings another interesting feature to the table, namely Sawaals. These are interactive questions that you can send to your friends as text. In return, they have to either nod in yes or no to reply to your question. Pretty interesting, isn’t it?

The app also supports a series of question sets to help you send your questions faster.

Emotions and Artificial Intelligence

Using machines to translate, process or express human emotions is one of the most difficult tasks in Artificial Intelligence.

Emotion-capable machines are friendlier, which helps people accept them into their lives. Many specialists suggest that emotional intelligence is the future of artificial intelligence.

We are barely scratching the surface when it comes to teaching machines to recognize and mimic emotion, so there’s still along road ahead.
