New baby monitor could use AI to alert parents before infant awakes
The internet search giant has worked on a product that promises to warn parents before their little one has even woken up. Using video streaming, audio recordings and AI, the device would monitor the baby's behavior against a database of normal patterns. Based on the infant's movements and any noise it makes, it would detect anything out of character and subsequently issue an alert if the baby appears uncomfortable. An alert could be issued before the baby cries or even wakes up, according to the patent, which was first reported by CNBC. The patent filing states: "While a baby's cry may alert his parents to the baby being in distress, sometimes a baby will not audibly indicate his distress.

Baby-changing tables could get tax break
Restaurants would get a tax credit for setting up baby-changing tables, under a measure proposed Wednesday by Sen. Lauren Book, a Plantation Democrat who gave birth to twins in February. The proposal (SB 236) would offer a tax credit equal to the cost of a changing table --- not including the cost of installation --- or $300, whichever is less. Credits would be available for up to two tables per restaurant. Earlier this month, Book also filed a bill (SB 56) that would provide a sales-tax exemption on diapers, along with incontinence undergarments, pads and liners. During the 2017 session, Book co-sponsored legislation that would have eliminated sales taxes on diapers, but the proposal did not make a final tax-cut package.
