If we want our computers to be intelligent and be able to interact with us we need to ensure that they are able to recognize, understand and express emotions. This is the basic assumption of the field of Affective Computing. In this talk Hakan will give an overview of Affective computing and how it can be applied in order to make our interaction with machines more suitable to us as humans. He will also highlight some of the technology enablers that has made Affective Computing a hot topic nowadays and give some examples of API and services that we as developers can use as of today. He will then show case what is in the front line now
