These AI language processing innovations range from smart alphabet toys that are designed to language-teaching apps that focus on multiple dialects. A winning example includes Marbotic's 'Smart Letters' toy that pairs classic wooden letters with an iPad app. Once paired together with a digital interface, the block letters create an augmented reality play experience that is also educational.

Other standouts in this realm include a myriad of intuitive chatbots -- from examples that detect users' moods by decoding their mobile messaging history to others that help users manage their money more seamlessly.

Additional AI language processing innovations include talkative smartphone toys and emotional intelligence robots that are able to understand the words and phrases of users -- so much so that they can answer their questions or engage in full-on conversations.
