The countries that are not in good shape are the countries that have perhaps a large population, but no AI, no technologies, no Google, no Tencent, no Baidu, no Alibaba, no Facebook, no Amazon,” Lee says. “These people will basically be data points to countries whose software is dominant in their country.

Introduction to Emotion Recognition – Algorithmia Blog

R

esearch has shown that over 90% of our communication can be non-verbal, but technology has struggled to keep up, and traditional code is generally bad at understanding our intonations and intentions. But emotion recognition – also called Affective Computing – is becoming accessible to more types of developers. This post will walk through the ins-and-outs of determining emotion from data, and a few ways you can get some emotion recognition and running yourself.https://blog.algorithmia.com/introduction-to-emotion-recognition/
