We live in a world of hyper-connected smart devices and appliances. Our devices have lots of IQ, but no EQ. Lots of cognitive intelligence but no emotional intelligence. What if technology could understand our emotions? Imagine your fridge working with you to eat healthier, or your wearable and TV team up to get you off the couch! Your bathroom mirror senses that you’re a bit stressed and interacts with your lighting to adjust it while turning on the right mood-enhancing music.
At Affectiva we believe the next wave in computing will be the emotionally intelligent Internet of Things. We can’t wait to see what mood-aware devices and machines you create!
