AI can read your emotional response to advertising and your facial expressions in a job interview. But if it can already do all this, what happens next? In part two of a series on emotion AI, Jennifer Strong and the team at MIT Technology Review explore the implications of how it’s used and where it’s heading in the future.

We meet:

  • Shruti Sharma, VSCO 
  • Gabi Zijderveld, Affectiva
  • Tim VanGoethem, Harman
  • Rohit Prasad, Amazon
  • Meredith Whittaker, NYU’s AI Now Institute

Credits: This episode was reported and produced by Jennifer Strong, Karen Hao, Tate Ryan-Mosley, and Emma Cillekens. We had help from Benji Rosen. We’re edited by Michael Reilly and Gideon Lichfield. 


We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
