Mar 18, 2021

11:00am – 11:30am CT

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. will discuss her groundbreaking mission to humanize technology with Emotion AI — technology that analyzes human expressions and reactions in context. She will describe 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 will also explore 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.
