Google has filed a patent for an AI-powered baby monitor to tell parents exactly what their child is up to at any given time.
The patent, published this month and uncovered by CNBC, details a device equipped with eye-tracking technology that would detect when a baby is awake or asleep.
It would also be able to differentiate between normal and abnormal behaviors based on sound and movement, and let parents know if the baby appears to be uncomfortable.

According to CNBC, the monitor described in the patent would come with ‘eye state analysis’ that relies on changes in the irises, pupils, and whites of the eye to identify a baby’s sleep state.
It would also take the baby’s body position into consideration, and be able to differentiate between standing, kneeling, climbing, or laying down.
