It seems that just like bees, Amazon can sense your fear.

Because nothing says "nightmare scenario" quite like a giant tech corporation everyone uses knowing what you're feeling, Amazon announced on Monday that Rekognition, its controversial facial recognition tool, can now detect a person's fear. 

The update includes "improved accuracy for emotion detection (for all 7 emotions: ‘Happy’, ‘Sad’, ‘Angry’, ‘Surprised’, ‘Disgusted’, ‘Calm’ and ‘Confused’)" but, just for kicks, I guess, "added a new emotion: ‘Fear’."
