IBM Seeks Patent on Software that Incorporates Human Emotion - IPWatchdog.com | Patents & Patent Law:
IBM patents emotions. How does that make your feel? Sad? Mad? Glad?
Well, let's not get emotional about this.
But it seems that our friends at IBM, the patent King, has a rather cleaver line on patents. IBM is making efforts to emulate the types of things done by the human emotions. Multiple channels, multiple inputs.
One would assume the same illogical and irrational things that make humans so unique and yet so imperfect. Right.
Steve Brachmann does a nice job of tying in other patent technologies related to communications and information processing that are in the same space.
I like the comment: "It looks like more than a full time job for IBM just keeping track of who is potentially infringing their patents."
True that. But having 10 patents issued per day give IBM a whole lot of leeway if someone comes after IBM.
