We human beings make a lot of strange sounds with our mouths, and if you listen carefully, a lot of them are just PACKED with emotional meaning. Join us in-studio as we recreate a very interesting study.
Spectrum: Does AI know my child better than I?
An alarming amount of children suffer from depression and anxiety. One principle reason is that kids often can’t communicate what’s going on inside - and parents and teachers just don’t pick up on it. Maybe artificial intelligence can.

Like destroying things? We all do. So much so that scientists in even Europe are planning a 100-kilometer mega-project to destroy the smallest things possible. Plus, a gigantic natural disaster is boiling in Germany's belly.
