What is It? How Can a Machine Exhibit It? "It's about thinking. The main theory is that emotions are nothing special. Each emotional state is a different style of thinking. So it's not a general theory of emotions, because the main idea is that each of the major emotions is quite different. They have different management organizations for how you are thinking you will proceed."
"Because the main point of the book [The Emotion Machine] is that it's trying to make theories of how thinking works. Our traditional idea is that there is something called 'thinking' and that it is contaminated, modulated or affected by emotions. What I am saying is that emotions aren't separate."
– Marvin Minsky. The Emotion Machine, book and draft, 2006.

The first emotionally aware AI will try to deal out the correct emoji playing card based on the expressed emotions in the textual data. How to be Social with "Emotion AI" You may send an entertaining screenshot of the results to anyone you wish, including the one who wrote the tweet, post, text message or statement! It's an educational and empowering way to engage friends, family or celebrities about their "feelings" with the world's greatest gaming platform, a deck of cards. How to Play a Game with "Emotion AI" (1 Players) One player enters the agreed upon emotional text into the application. Examples include a tweet from a celebrity, text messages from a friend, or an iconic line from a movie.
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.
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.
In years past, the emotional intelligence of employees was low on the list of qualifications, especially for leaders. However, with the way that the market has changed, how someone connects with others on an emotional level is becoming much more important. Company leaders need to understand the emotional connection audiences have with services, products and companies as a whole. The most recent Fjord Trends 2020 even talks about "liquid people" and why it is important to set up human insights teams instead of consumer insights. All this leads to the conclusion that now, more then ever before, if you want to successfully lead your company or grow your startup, you will need to understand what emotional connections are and how they can propel you forward.
Artificial intelligence is a prime point of discussion for businesses across the world. How will increased implementation affect the job market? Will workers have to continually learn new skills to move into new positions or avoid having their current assignments absorbed by robots? Less emphasized is how AI technology can be used to modify or influence human behavior. In other words, how can AI impact emotional intelligence -- or EQ? Diana Wu David, author of "Future Proof: Reinventing Work in the Age of Acceleration," recently wrote a piece for Fast Company about AI, EQ and our behavior.
What do you think when someone asks you about empathy? Do you struggle to find its meaning or does it come to you naturally? In the age of artificial intelligence, do our AI systems need empathy? If so, what are some use cases where empathy can be most helpful in AI Systems? When we read a book out loud to our children, they can hear the emotions we imbue into the passages.
There's little scientific basis to emotion recognition technology, so it should be banned from use in decisions that affect people's lives, says research institute AI Now in its annual report. A booming market: Despite the lack of evidence that machines can work out how we're feeling, emotion recognition is estimated to be at least a $20 billion market, and it's growing rapidly. The technology is currently being used to assess job applicants and people suspected of crimes, and it's being tested for further applications, such as in VR headsets to deduce gamers' emotional states. Further problems: There's also evidence emotion recognition can amplify race and gender disparities. Regulators should step in to heavily restrict its use, and until then, AI companies should stop deploying it, AI Now said.
Cimon, the world's first AI-powered astronaut assistant, has returned to the International Space Station--this time with a heightened ability to analyse human emotion. The objective, according to the researchers who fine-tuned the robot after its first successful mission aboard the spacecraft, is to transform Cimon from a scientific assistant into "an empathetic companion". As was the original Cimon, which spent 14 months in space, the new and improved Cimon-2 is a joint project by IBM, Airbus and the German Aerospace Center (DLR). Cimon-1 returned to Earth from the International Space Station (ISS) in August. Cimon-2 is heading back to the space station on a SpaceX rocket that launched 4 December from Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.
