    22. The Feelings Lab - Listener Questions + Emotion Science News

    Join Hume AI CEO Dr. Alan Cowen and podcast host Matt Forte as they venture through the best pod-listener questions we've received so far this season: a veritable emotion science "mailbag." Can people who understand the emotions of others better interpret emotions conveyed through music? How should we responsibly address the ethics around emotion AI data collection and usage? Is there a healthy level of emotional expressivity conducive to emotional well-being? Are video calls bad for brainstorming? Do lobsters or hermit crabs have feelings? Tune in to hear the answer to these questions and more.

    21. The Feelings Lab - Pain & Personalized Medicine w/ Dr. Daniel Barron

    21. The Feelings Lab - Pain & Personalized Medicine w/ Dr. Daniel Barron

    Join Hume AI CEO Dr. Alan Cowen, Dr. Daniel Barron, Harvard Medical School psychiatrist and Director of the Pain Intervention & Digital Research Program, and Matt Forte as they discuss pain and personalized medicine. Different people express and describe their pain differently, but how these signals are understood can have life-altering implications. We discuss the different kinds of pain: acute vs. chronic pain, central vs. peripheral, the enigma of phantom limb pain, and how physicians evaluate pain syndromes and their treatment. Can pain be measured objectively? Is there a role for quantitative tools in treating pain? Can AI help us reduce bias in how pain is diagnosed and treated?

    19. The Feelings Lab - Special Conversation ICML ExVo Workshop & Competition Panel

    19. The Feelings Lab - Special Conversation ICML ExVo Workshop & Competition Panel

    Join us for our podcast on expressive vocalizations and machine learning, where we discuss the powerful, contagious non-word utterances like yelps, laughs, and sighs that play a critical role in our social and emotional lives and provide new channels for human-computer interaction. Our guests include Hume AI CEO Dr. Alan Cowen, Creative Destruction Lab and DeepMind research scientist Dr. Kory Mathewson, Dr. Gauthier Gidel, professor at the Université de Montréal and Mila faculty member, and Hume AI Research Scientists Dr. Panagiotis Tzirakis and Alice Baird.

    Hume AI is proud to co-organize ICML's Expressive Vocalization (ExVo) Workshop and Competition. Bringing together leading emotion scientists and AI researchers, ExVo explores the machine learning problem of understanding and generating vocal bursts—a wide range of expressive nonverbal vocalizations such as laughs, sighs, grunts, cries, screams, oohs, ahhs, and huhs (to name but a few). The challenge is co-sponsored by Hume AI, Mila, and the National Film Board of Canada.
