Aug. 23, 2018 Affective Artificial Intelligence and Its Potential Applications in Health Care – Kang Lee
Kang Lee BSc, M Ed, PhD is University Distinguished Professor, Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study, University of Toronto. He has invented a new technology that uses artificial intelligence to measure vital signs and emotions by analyzing videos of a person’s face. Lee co-founded NuraLogix to commercialize his research breakthrough. Their first product will allow doctors to use regular webcams to monitor the heart rate, blood pressure, stress and pain of their patients remotely, helping to reduce costly and unnecessary visits to the emergency room. We will soon be able to measure our loved ones’ vital signs with just a video app, whether they are in the room or on the other side of the world. He also envisions his technology as “an emotion engine,” empowering smartphones, cars, laptops and even social robots to help calm people in stressful situations and to better attune machines to our needs.
