When Your Internet Things Know How You Feel

Mar 10, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

The technology we use every day knows a lot about what we do—what we click on, where we go, and who we follow. But so far, it doesn’t know much about how we feel. That’s changing.

Emotion-sensing technology is moving from an experimental phase to reality. Maybe, our Internet things will start to understand us, cultivating emotional connections and picking up on social cues. What does it mean for how we design technology? This talk, grounded in the latest research and case studies, shows how designers can create rich, emotional experiences for the next wave of emotion-aware technology.
