Poppy Crum: Technology Knows What You're Feeling | TED
What happens when technology knows more about us than we do? Poppy Crum studies how we express emotions—and she suggests the end of the poker face is near, as new tech makes it easy to see the signals that give away how we're feeling.
In her popular TED Talk, Dr. Crum explores the implications of technology that learns more about us as we use it, and advocates for a world where technology fuels human evolution and experience in a powerfully positive way. In a talk and demo, she shows how "empathetic technology" can read physical signals like body temperature and the chemical composition of our breath to inform on our emotional state. For better or for worse. "If we recognize the power of becoming technological empaths, we get this opportunity where technology can help us bridge the emotional and cognitive divide," Dr. Crum says.
