Emotion


Is Emotion AI only Hype or is it a Reality Platform to Showcase Innovative Startups and Tech News

#artificialintelligence

If anything can supersede the hype around artificial intelligence (AI) than it is probably Emotion AI, the irony is that the latter is the subset of AI itself. The hype around emotion AI revolves around the excitement of witnessing the mass infiltration of machines into complex world of human emotions. For too long machines have been considered as a beast that can interpret & simplify complex data but miserably falls short of replicating the same magic in the area of human emotion. However, this hypothesis and assumption is now being challenged by artificial intelligence. Emotion Ai is essentially one of emerging areas of AI where machines seek to analyze and comprehend human emotions by judging facial expressions, body language, gestures, voice tone so and so forth.


3 Steps to Strategic Retail Pricing Transformation

#artificialintelligence

For all the talk about the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to drive meaningful transformation for retailers that want to reinvent themselves for today's demanding renvironment, many companies fall short of harnessing the full benefits of AI and analytics for actionable insights. That's because many of these attempts fail to take into account the human element of effective change management. For retailers to successfully benefit from AI, there must be systematic, organizationwide commitment to driving meaningful change and creating a data-driven culture. In more than 10 years of deep engagement with retailers working to adopt AI-based price and promotion optimization, I've learned that AI and analytics alone do not power true transformation to a more agile and nimble strategy. Instead, real success comes when a company embraces wide-ranging organizational change.


Emotional Intelligence Needs a Rewrite - Issue 83: Intelligence

Nautilus

You've probably met people who are experts at mastering their emotions and understanding the emotions of others. When all hell breaks loose, somehow these individuals remain calm. They know what to say and do when their boss is moody or their lover is upset. It's no wonder that emotional intelligence was heralded as the next big thing in business success, potentially more important than IQ, when Daniel Goleman's bestselling book, Emotional Intelligence, arrived in 1995. After all, whom would you rather work with--someone who can identify and respond to your feelings, or someone who has no clue?


Artificial vs Emotional Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

"It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change" -- Charles Darwin. Artificial Intelligence Vs Emotional intelligence is not a recent debate. No matter what the context, we always get caught up in the idea that AI will be either one of two things: our destroyer or our savior. Which school of thought are you?


Affective Computing Market to Witness a Pronounce Growth During 2017 to 2025 – Market Research Sheets

#artificialintelligence

The global affective computing market is envisioned to create high growth prospects on the back of the rising deployment of machine and human interaction technologies. With enabling technologies already making a mark with their adoption in a range of industry verticals, it could be said that the market has started to evolve. Facial feature extraction software collecting a handsome demand in the recent years is expected to augur well for the growth of the deployment of cameras in affective computing systems. Detection of psychological disorders, facial expression recognition for dyslexia, autism, and other disorders in specially-abled children, and various other applications could increase the use of affective computing technology. Life sciences and healthcare are prognosticated to showcase a promising rise in the demand for affective computing.


AI can now read emotions – should it?

#artificialintelligence

In its annual report, the AI Now Institute, an interdisciplinary research center studying the societal implications of artificial intelligence, called for a ban on technology designed to recognize people's emotions in certain cases. Specifically, the researchers said affect recognition technology, also called emotion recognition technology, should not be used in decisions that "impact people's lives and access to opportunities," such as hiring decisions or pain assessments, because it is not sufficiently accurate and can lead to biased decisions. What is this technology, which is already being used and marketed, and why is it raising concerns? Researchers have been actively working on computer vision algorithms that can determine the emotions and intent of humans, along with making other inferences, for at least a decade. Facial expression analysis has been around since at least 2003.

#artificialintelligence

Affectiva is an MIT Media Lab spin-off focused understanding human emotion. Our vision is that technology needs the ability to sense, adapt and respond to not just commands but also non-verbal signals. We are building artificial emotional intelligence (Emotion AI). As you can imagine, such an ambitious vision takes a great team with a strong desire to explore and innovate. We are growing our team to improve and expand our core technologies and help solve many unique and interesting problems focused around sensing, understanding and adapting to human emotion.


Emotional Intelligence and Its Connection with Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

With the emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning, technology has become an integral seat of thought, regardless of the industry. With such integration, it seems scary to see the effects of these on our social and inter-personal lives. Indeed, when it comes to managing tasks, AI is without a doubt the most useful technology. However, the impact it has on our neural architecture leads to loopholes in our lives and especially in our careers. According to hbr.org, "37% of executives say that managers' lack of understanding of cognitive technologies hampers AI adoption."

New Research Hints at How Your Smiles Could One Day Teach Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

We live in an era when humans are busy training a new intelligence on this planet. Every once in a while, researchers come up with a novel way to speed up that teaching process. That's what happened at Microsoft Research where computer scientists recently developed a new approach to using human emotion to train machines how to learn.[i] The research used virtual agents to facilitate learning various tasks in a simulated environment. What is most significant about this research is that it trained those agents by exposing them to the smiles of human subjects as they interacted with the system.
