In a patent application published this week, Google indicated it’s looking into how artificial intelligence can be used to watch for abnormal behavior in babies.
The system would consist of eye tracking and motion detection and could alert a parent if anything is out of the ordinary.
Google’s hefty investment in artificial intelligence might be making its way to the crib.
According to a patent application filed last year and published on Thursday, Google is researching technology that could track a baby’s eyes, movements and sounds using “intelligent” audio and video. If the behavior seems abnormal, the cloud-based system would notify parents on their device.
