LONDON, United Kingdom (NBC/KXAN) — New research from the Imperial College Business School suggests that digital assistants like Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home may soon be able to predict a user’s love life.
According to the study, in-home listening devices will be able to judge if a relationship is happy and healthy or on the rocks.
Researchers say the device could act as a therapeutic resource within a relationship. For example, the device could listen to conversations and arguments and give advice or suggest ways to resolve issues.
So, by 2021, according to the study, digital assistants using artificial intelligence will be able to predict with 75 percent accuracy whether a relationship or marriage is going to be successful.
