Presented by Professor Luke Stark and part of the FIMS Seminar Series.

Abstract: I provide a taxonomy of relevant models and proxy data for emotional expression, and outline how the combinations and permutations of these models and data impact AI systems deploying them. We should not take computer scientists at their word that the paradigms for human emotions they have developed internally and adapted from other fields are ground truth; instead, I ask how different conceptualizations of what emotions are, and how they can be sensed, measured and transformed into data, shape the way  human values are built into and expressed by automated systems.

All are welcome to attend. If you are not part of the FIMS community but would like to attend this lecture, please email Karen Kueneman at for the Zoom info.
