It’s natural for people to interact with technology (or animals, plants, inanimate objects) the way we interact with other humans. It’s our way: perceptual, conversational, emotional, social, relational. As more and more advanced AI systems and robots interact with humans, they will require social and emotional intelligence, not just computing power. Any AI system that interacts with humans will have to meet us on these terms. Look us in the face.

This session will include a live demo of Affectiva’s Emotion Recognition technology as well as the massive data sets and core technology that enables the recognition of facial expressions. Affectiva co-founder and CEO, Dr. Rana el Kaliouby will discuss use cases for this eye-popping tech, from advertising research, recruitment, mental health and education to the future of mobility and autonomous vehicles. Oh yeah, the moral and ethical implications of this technology will also be discussed.
