I was at the Emotion AI Sumiit yesterday put on by Affectiva, the theme was "Trust in AI"
It was fantastic, the talks and panels that I sat in for were all fantastic, I met Rana El Kaliouby and she's fantastic
I'm sick this morning so I'm gonna just go back to bed, but if anyone's interested I can talk a bit more about the things people were saying
at some other time...

In light of the news for Google making their dataset search engine, it looks like the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the US just gave $500,000 to a group to investigate a "Google for research data" :smirk: https://www.lehigh.edu/engineering/news/faculty/2018/20180820-davison-heflin-jia-dataset-search-engine-nsf-award.html

The group critiques Google and Yahoo search engines currently as:

"They understand web pages, not datasets. And existing dataset search services are cumbersome, focusing on searching descriptions instead of data, and they cater to researchers looking within their own discipline."

@becausealice2 oh cool! I didn't know the name at first, but I feel like one of us has shared some articles talking about Affectiva or similar technology, interfacing with the human side of computing.
