This presentation is by Dr. Rana el Kaliouby, the Co-Founder and CEO of Affectiva, and author of Girl Decoded. Artificial intelligence is becoming mainstream and it is increasingly taking on roles that were traditionally done by humans - helping us lead healthier, happier, and more productive lives. But as we design these AI systems, it is important that we put the human back front and center. This talk will discuss why it is important to build AI that is empathetic and human centric, especially as we tackle the "empathy crisis" in these complex times. The recording is about 20 minutes long and was originally presented at the Altair Technology Conference 2020.
