What is emotion AI and why should you care?

An article with this title was published by KDnuggets. “Emotions help us to understand and explore the world. What if we could incorporate emotions into machine learning systems to help inform them?Link

One of the examples involved using drivers’ heartbeats to guide machine learning. (Heart rate is one of the ways we express and experience emotions. Others include at the biological level: changes in body temperature, pupil and blood vessel dilation/constriction and changes in blood flow, breathing, and brain waves, increased/decreased production of saliva, hormones and digestive enzymes, and so on.) Mr. McDuff’s team used drivers’ emotional responses as expressed through their heartbeat in training a neural network model to drive a car. The result? The model was able to drive a vehicle longer than the state-of-the-art model without emotions.
