Scott Amyx, the founder and CEO of Amyx+, will be speaking on affective computing and sentiment analysis in wearables. His presentation will explore new dimensions of context, geolocation, behavioral pattern, and biometrics. The human-computer interaction academic field has been researching emotion recognition through the use of physiological parameters measured by wearable sensors, such as ECG, accelerometers, EMG, body impedance, skin conductivity, heart rate variability, blood volume pulse, breathing rate and volume to determine mental conditions such as emotions, mood, depression, attention level, stress, and anxiety. Amyx will describe how the dimensions of affective computing, when layered with artificial intelligence, can determine a person’s emotional reaction to user engagement.
In addition to speaking, Scott Amyx will be participating on the “Visions: The Future of Augmented Reality Devices” panel on Tuesday, March 10th at 4pm.
