Rosalind Picard, SM ’86, SCD ’91, Founder & Director, Affective Computing Research Group, MIT Media LabKeynote Description: What happens when an electrical engineer and computer scientist, who does not want to have anything to do with emotion, winds up learning it could improve the future of AI? Join Prof. Rosalind Picard in a series of fun stories ranging from trying to help children with autism avoid meltdowns, to learning surprising new facts about “truly happy” smiles, to inventing new wearable sensors that try to measure emotion (and wind up as Sheldon’s Emotion Sensor on Big Bang Theory), to accidental discoveries that are now saving lives. Today their sensors and machine learning algorithms are used in epilepsy, stress, sleep, mood, autism, migraine, and other studies. What is the big challenge they aim to solve next?
