Welcome to our emotional sound experience

Our AI hears what you’re feeling in your voice. Today, it’s using that skill to match your mood with a song. Sound fun?

Laughs, cries, and sighs — Hover over the shapes for some inspiration. Tap the shapes for some inspiration.

(You’ll want volume on.)

Without words,
use your voice to express how you’re feeling.

Please wait while we analyse your vocal burst...

These are the feelings we heard in your voice.

Now, sink a little deeper into those feelings—with a musical mood enhancer.

Flume, Toro y Moi

The Difference

How many individual emotions can the human voice express?

The emotion scientists Alan Cowen and Dacher Keltner discovered that the human voice can convey 24 emotions without words. Today, the list of emotions conveyed by the voice continues to grow, and the scientists at Hume AI have built an algorithm to classify them. Hume’s algorithm is what powers this experience. These are the emotions that it can detect.

What’s it all about?

This experience was built by Hume AI, a research lab and technology company. Hume’s mission is to ensure that artificial intelligence is built to improve human emotional well-being.


Hume AI was created by leading emotion scientists who envision a future in which the development of AI incorporates insights from emotion science to improve human emotional experience. A first step is to build AI that understands everyday emotional expressions, like vocalizations, and can respond to them appropriately. The purpose of this experience is to demonstrate this possibility.


As Hume paves the way for AI that improves human emotional experience, we are committed to helping ensure that the AI of the future is safe, beneficial, and unbiased. You can read more about our values here.
