The age of emotional machines

NEC Corp developed technologies to evaluate an author's feelings based on text data, carry out voice synthesis and read out the text in a voice that expresses the emotion of the author, as well as to automatically decorate characters.

Soon, synthetic actors will be reading bedtime stories to children around the world. Human TV anchors will become totally obsolete. Only the President will have the honorable duty to read his speeches of a teleprompter all by himself.
