How Machines Analyze Emotions to Improve Patient Care

artificial emotional intelligence

Artificial emotional intelligence (AEI), also known as emotions analytics or affective computing, uses software to analyze a human's verbal and non-verbal communication and determine the person’s emotional or psychological state.
