AI and the Sensing of Human Emotions

Posted on 19. May 2017

Emotion sensing can enhance personal profiling applied in business applications such as marketing, health care, education or consulting. Machine emotional intelligence is still evolving, but the future could soon see targeted ads that respond to our current emotional state as well.

As systems take on new therapy and coaching functions collecting an increasing amount of personal data about us, concerns about privacy and ethics will grow.
