The “emotion engine” is a set of AI technologies developed by cocoro SB Corp., which enable machines to artificially generate their own emotions.

Auto industry continues to merge, sort of, with the tech industry, Silicon Valley and the citadels of automaking in Detroit, Japan, and Germany to get closer than they’re ever been before.
