How Corporations Will Use Artificial Empathy to Sell Us More Shit

How Corporations Will Use Artificial Empathy to Sell Us More Shit | Humanoid autism | Scoop.it
Known as artificial empathy, the idea here is to train machines to recognize social signals from humans, aka ‘visual data,’ and then produce an appropriate response.

 

The emergence of social signal processing as a branch of computer science and robotics is a relatively new phenomenon, but it has already attracted a significant amount of attention from another field of research that is also profoundly interested in understanding the way humans communicate: marketing.

On the one hand, harnessing artificial empathy is considered an essential step toward integrating robots and artificial intelligences into human society as it will allow for more fluid and affective human-robot interaction. On the other, it is seen as a marketing goldmine, as the work being done by Shasha Lu, a lecturer in marketing at the Cambridge Judge Business School, is wont to show.

Near-term Research Outlook for Care Robots

Chris Atkeson, a professor at Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute and Human Computer Interaction Institute. "One social robotics challenge that needs additional basic research is how to create robot companions that can touch and physically interact with people who need physical care. This would be of tremendous use as many professional caregivers are forced to quit due to the physical toll of moving patients.
"A care robot should also be able to offer monitoring and diagnostic assistance -- a future capability we are already helping along with the growing popularity of wearable technology. But although wearable technology is now fashionable, it will soon be supplemented by swallowed or implanted devices that have access to body fluids, whether it be in dental fillings and crowns (which would have access to saliva and breath), or something ingested or under the skin (to allow for bloodwork).
"I expect that a human would learn to help the robot as much as the robot would be learning to help the human. And it's also important to remember that quality human-robot interaction matters. My other grandmother, who had become blind, was uninterested in early reading machines because the voices were not gentle or soothing.
"In the very short term, I see a future in which our phones or pocket computers communicate with sensors in our shoes, clothes, and even inside our teeth and bodies to track and improve our personal health on a minute-by-minute basis."
