Pairing AI with haptics to signal message importance.

AI determines the importance of a message and communicates the level of urgency via haptics.

The hottest technology products on the market today use artificial intelligence (AI) to make life easier for the user. While many assume that haptics in AI means making robots more human, haptics has a more important, less obvious role to play. Haptics can be used to create an ongoing conversation between the device and the user. Haptics paired with AI can communicate different levels of urgency and respond with contextually appropriate cues, such as indicating that the user has an important, time-sensitive message that requires immediate attention, versus one that is mundane.
