Overview

In the bestselling tradition of Lab Girl, the unforgettable narrative of an Egpytian-American technology pioneer who, after getting her Ph.D in computer science from Cambridge University, founded Affectiva, a leader in the new field of Emotion AI, to build emotional intelligence into our computers and transform how we communicate.

Ninety-three percent of meaningful communication between people is nonverbal. We glean more information from facial expressions, tone of voice, and body language than we do with language alone. Yet the computers we use every day to communicate with colleagues, clients, and friends are emotionally blind when it comes to recognizing and adapting to our feelings and emotions. With so much of our lives spent interacting with technology, our emotions can get lost. And as a result, our society, Rana el Kaliouby claims, has become less empathetic.

In a captivating narrative into the research and developments of Emotion AI, el Kaliouby shows that we are only scratching the surface of our computers' full potential, something she experienced firsthand when she moved to Cambridge from Cairo to pursue her Ph.D., and tried to maintain her relationships at home via email and messenging. It was that experience that helped to drive her research in bringing emotional intelligence to our machines. When Computers Smile brings together el Kaliouby's personal story as a Muslim woman in a coding universe dominated by men, with her pioneering efforts to bring the new universe of Emotion AI into our lives, through her company's work in the automotive industry, health and wellness, and robotics.
