Finally, a baby translator

We’ve seen how kids have their coded language kept as a deep and dark secret in shows like the Rugrats. However, in case of unanimated, real babies, it isn’t all that easy. Their cries are misinterpreted into an array of suppositions, that often leaves parents wondering what to do next. Japanese scientists have managed to decipher this coded crying pattern (or whatever they call it) so that parent can tell when their baby is crying for the need of a diaper change or in real pain. Quite astonishingly, the trials of this procedure have seen success rates of up to 96 percent!

The research is carried out by researchers at the Hiroshima International University. We have seen a similar demonstration from the iPhone Cry Translator application
