EMOTIONALLY INTELLIGENT MACHINES

EMOTIONALLY INTELLIGENT MACHINES TRACK

Humans tend to think emotion is the last bastion separating man and machine. We are, however, anticipating huge leaps in the development of emotionally intelligent machines. At the moment, computer can recognize emotions from speech better than a fellow human and robots replicate facial expressions accurately. Soon we might have machines emulating, and even truly feeling, human emotions. Will caring robots remove the need for humane contact? Learn what will happen to society and business when machines start to care. The Emotionally Intelligent Machines track of SHIFT 2018 will answer those question and more, with the following lineup.
