MEET Affective Computing


Affective computing is the process of utilizing biometrics in AI to detect human emotions and even someone’s state of mind. This is obviously a revolutionary application of AI, but now the law is starting to catch up and for the first time lawmakers are questioning whether this can be validly used by the government for homeland security issues. Many academics have their opinion, but this issue is most likely just the tip of the iceberg as we start to see AI’s ability to absorb, digest, and interpret data we – human beings – cannot even see.
