TECH CRUNCH - Aug 23 - Wearables currently decipher physiological biometrics, but in the coming years, we'll see emotion-sensing wearable technology that clues us into specific human emotions. When this data is shared across networks, we'll enter the dawn of the "Emotional Internet." Much of this research and development is part of the emerging field of affective computing, which examines ways to create sensors and computers that can detect and respond to human emotions. By studying speech patterns, facial expressions, body gestures and physiological reactions to specific stimuli, researchers hope to amass a database of emotions they can train computers to recognize and interact with.
Mark Brooks: Thanks to Dr Kilpatrick at BeehiveID for sharing this article. His comment... "It would be cool if you could get emotional feedback after a date. I think this kind of thing is going to be really hard to measure, though." What do you think? How creepy would this be? Please comment.
