Scientists have found that babies cry in different ways. With meaning
The timbre of baby crying changes if the baby wants to eat, if he is sad, or if he is in pain. We are talking, of course, about the smallest children who have not yet learned to speak. Theoretically, the modern development of technology makes it possible to create a universal device that can distinguish the meaning of children's crying, so that parents finally stop tormented by the question: “Well, why are you crying? What else do you need?”
Researchers from Japan have recorded the sounds of children's crying, which expressed different emotional states and manifested itself in different sound waves. This has led to a very simple formula that can be used to clearly identify what exactly a crying baby wants. The Japanese claim that today they can determine with almost 100% accuracy whether crying is the cause of hunger, sadness or pain.
True, so far this work is done by a fairly large computer. But we are talking about the most technologically advanced country, so the creation of more compact devices that decipher children's crying is just a matter of time.
One can only imagine how much these devices will make life easier for new parents!
