Entrepreneur Who Is Teaching Computers To Understand Human Emotions – 43-year-old Rana’s ‘Emotion AI’ will save the lives of drivers in future

Today is the era of smart supercomputers that can do billions and billions of calculations in the blink of an eye, can quickly translate complex to complex language, even operate smart machinery. Despite this, computers have not yet developed the skill to understand human emotions. Despite artificial intelligence and machine learning technology, these smart machines are still far behind in understanding human emotions. Egyptian-American computer scientist Rana El Kaliubi is working to change this pattern. Rana, 43, founded his company Affectiva while pursuing a PhD in Emotion AI from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Using Emotion AI, she is teaching Kaliyubi computers to recognize and measure human emotions. Kaliyubi says that this mission of his will prove to be a boon for the coming generation and future computers.

Feeling Teaching Computers
With the help of Emotion AI technology, Kaliyubi was the first to create a spectacle that helps to read the facial expressions of children with autism. It prompts the wearer of the glasses how to recognize and respond to gestures such as smiling or frowns. According to Rana, these children actually saw very positive improvements with the use of glasses. After years of research and updation, inspired by this technology was launched in 2017 in the form of smart devices like Google Glass. Born in Egypt, Kaliyubi’s parents were both computer programmers and she studied computer science at the American University in Cairo in 2009. Today Rana’s company ‘Affectiva’ has grown into a Boston-based international multi-million dollar enterprise using Affectiva University.

Kaliubi believes that Emotion AI can be of great use in the automotive industry, as a driver monitoring system. With the help of AI cameras in cars, it can detect and alert the driver’s mood, anxiety and sleepiness, which will help in preventing accidents. According to a report by the European Commission, 90 percent of road accidents are caused by human error. Apart from this, ‘Emotion AI’ is useful for cars in other ways as well. The car can adjust the cabin lights as needed, turn off the music, change the temperature. It can also tell the personal experiences of the people on the job, such as whether they are feeling well or No.

A 2019 meta-study concluded more than 1000 research papers, ‘Emotion AI’ is fully capable of universal facial expression. Emotion recognition AI is less accurate than humans but can be improved, according to a 2020 study. With 11 million (11 million) facial responses from 90 countries, Kaliyubi is building a diverse database that removes age, gender and racial biases from its system. She is working on a model that incorporates facial expressions and tone of voice. Their ‘Emotion AI’ technology also pays attention to nuances such as culture and context.
