New Vistas In Emotion And Technology

Meghna Chakrabarti

Join Meghna Chakrabarti, co-host of Radio Boston, for a one-day summit on emotion and technology. Meghna will moderate a discussion with keynote speaker Arturo Bejar, director of engineering at Facebook.

Sponsored by the Northeastern University Affective Science Institute, the daylong “New Vistas in Emotion and Technology” will explore the cutting edge in building emotional capabilities  into technological entities. It will also examine ways to monitor emotional well-being through wearable technology.

The summit will bring together leading researchers and engineers at the forefront of emotion science and mobile/social technology.  In addition to Meghna, Boston Globe technology columnist Hiawatha Bray and PopTech curator Andrew Zolli will each moderate a panel discussion. They’ll be joined by many guest speakers for a lively exploration of what the future holds for “emotion-sensitive” tech.
