Have you heard of the Infant Cries Translator App? This mobile phone application aims to decode the reason why a newborn baby cries between things such as hunger, tiredness, pain or a wet diaper.
In 2015, a group of researchers from the National Taiwan University Hospital Yunlin developed this application through a two-year study which involves recording 200,000 baby sounds from 100 newborns and compiling them into a huge online database. The app works by listening to your crying baby for around 15 seconds, compares it to the database and interprets the results. According to the study, the accuracy of the results were up to 92% for under 2 week-old babies and up to 84 % for 2 months old and below. Isn’t it an amazing tool for us parents?
