New Vistas In Emotion and Technology

The Northeastern University Affective Science Institute presents New Vistas in Emotion and Technology on Friday, January 31 at 9 a.m.

This one-day summit will bring together leading researchers and engineers at the forefront of emotion science and mobile/social technology to discuss emerging, cross-cutting initiatives aimed at enhancing individual and societal wellbeing.

In addition to the speakers, which includes Arturo Bejar the engineering director at Facebook, the summit will feature top-notch moderators — Meghna Chakrabarti or WBUR’s Radio Boston, Hiawatha Bray of the Boston Globe, and Andrew Zolli of Pop Tech.

Together with the audience, panels will explore issues including:

  • how endowing technological entities (e.g., robots, virtual agents and avatars) with emotional expression alters interactions with humans,
  • how new advances in mobile technology can be used to assess emotional and physiological changes relevant to physical and mental health, and
  • how emotion science can be leveraged to enhance harmony and user satisfaction in online social networks.
