'Hugging Face' is an app that brings the emoji of the same name to life through artificial intelligence.

When downloaded, the AI app serves as a companion throughout one's day, with the smart chat bot asking questions like: "Did you sleep well?" and "Did you do anything fun today?" As users interact with the chat bot, it levels up. Users may also collect achievements along the way by earning in-app points or performing actions such as adding a profile picture.

Hugging Face leverages AI technology to decipher a user's tone to send relevant messages and even appropriate GIFs. Although Hugging Face is still in development, half a year of testing has proved that its platform is most popular with young users between the ages of 13 and 20.
