Affective Computing and Adverse Emotions

Rosalind W. Picard
MIT Media Laboratory , USA

Affective computing is computing that relates to, arises from, or deliberately influences emotion. This talk will overview the research and development of several new technologies for sensing and responding to people's adverse emotional states, and for modeling the influences of these states on decision-making and other behaviors. I will include examples that deal with loss, disagreement, frustration, stress, and pain.

I plan to bring a sample of the new technologies to the workshop and perform live demonstration of their use.
