What if technology could understand people in the same way that we understand one another?

In an inspiring session in conjunction with the paperback launch of her popular memoir, Girl Decoded, Affectiva co-founder and CEO Rana el Kaliouby, Ph.D. discusses her groundbreaking mission to humanize technology with Emotion AI — technology that analyzes human expressions and reactions in context. She  describes how its applications in automotive, advertising, mental health and autism research feed her mission to transform our relationship with technology, and by extension, with one another. Rana also explores how these applications will facilitate the shift towards an empathy economy: the ability for companies to truly connect on an emotional level with their clients and embody empathetic leadership to create an unparalleled sense of purpose.
