Ep. 11: Rana el Kaliouby of Affectiva on emotional AI


In this episode, we have a conversation with Rana el Kaliouby, CEO and Co-Founder of Affectiva, about emotional AI, bias in AI and her new book, Girl Decoded. Rana is a leader in her views on ethical AI and how to design AI systems for humans—two topics that are near to our hearts! We hope you enjoy this conversation as much as we did.

Note we open with a short conversation about IBM’s announcement about no longer selling general purpose facial recognition technology—an unusual step for a big tech platform to cancel a product line for ethical reasons.
