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.

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.

Intelligent system reads human emotions via AI

#artificialintelligence

A mechatronic engineering student from Australia's Curtin University had developed an intelligent system capable of reading people's emotions in real-time. This project offers potential benefits for national security as well as health authorities. According to a recent press release, three artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms were used to create the system. The algorithms are capable of assessing emotional reactions via the monitoring of real-time video footage. Final-year student, Mr. Jordan Vice, was invited to present his work to the First IEEE International Conference on Cognitive Machine Intelligence held in Los Angeles recently.
