SHENZHEN, China — Chinese tech company Huawei wants to change the way people talk to their artificially intelligent voice assistants. The firm plans to make those conversations more emotionally interactive, according to senior executives.

Voice-powered virtual assistants currently serve a functional role, by giving information — “What’s the weather like?” — or completing small tasks like turning on a playlist. Huawei wants to take that a step further and create a voice companion to fulfill some of its users’ emotional needs.

“We want to provide emotional interactions,” Felix Zhang, vice president of software engineering at Huawei’s consumer business group, told CNBC at the company’s annual global analyst summit in Shenzhen, China.
