Solo talk: Will Machines Be Able to Feel?

Fairmont Manchester EFG, 101 Red River., Austin TX 78701

During her solo talk, Aleksandra Przegalinska will explore the question: Will machines will be able to feel?

The Turing Test is over. It's time for context-aware, "emotional" machines. Aleksandra Przegalinska will focus her presentation on affective and emotional data, which an emerging and promising field in Artificial Intelligence that quite often tells us more about consumers than what they declare.

She will use case studies of existing affective data applications sourced from start-ups and the academic world to discuss how to design proper methodologies for collecting emotional data. She will take into account existing and future hardware and software capabilities as well as the ethical considerations that inevitably come with using sensitive data.

Aleksandra will also share her current research projects on human-bot interaction and wearable tech that collects and processes substantive psychophysiological data.

If you are interested in in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence you can meet Aleksandra Przegalinska during her Mentor Session.

You are also invited to participate in a live audience podcast at EU@SXSW, where Aleksandra Przegalinska together with Kasper Zeuthenem will discuss whether there are any differences between the US and Europe in attitudes towards the adoption of Artificial Intelligence.
