The Learning Machine at the Bristol Data & AI Showcase

Ever wondered whether machines understand emotion? Join us at the Bristol Data & AI Showcase on Tuesday 7 June 2022, to play the emotion machine game. Match human faces to emotions and watch the machine learn.

Hear from the creators, Dr Oliver Davis, Reader in Statistical Genetics, Bristol Medical School and Dr Valerio Maggio, Senior Research Associate, Bristol Medical School, in a short video about the project.

Oliver notes that the hope is to “get people working together with machines”, in order to “understand how they work”, “to trust them more”, and to avoid “biases”.

Valerio notes that the aim of the project is “to understand” what it means “for a face to express a specific emotion”.
