Abstract:

  • Analytic cloudbased speech-to-text engines like the Google API and IBM Watson function through semantic analysis of speech. This is accomplished by assigning weighted values based on the force of an emotional statement, or its magnitude, and an emotional analysis of its score, meaning if the sentence is positive, negative, or neutral. These same analytic qualifiers can be deployed by speech-to-text or text-tospeech chatbots, and developed into analytic engines that are tasked with critical decision making power about customer service, healthcare, jurisprudence, social sorting, employment, and migration, among others. Private corporations like Facebook’s Building 8 and the U.S. Military’s DARPA Agency [1] [2] are funding research to develop semantic analysis of thoughts in the brain capable of interacting directly with computers. AIBO, a work-in-progress emotionally intelligent artificial intelligence brain opera presents a rapid prototype of a built feedback loop between EEG signals from a human brain and an emotionally intelligent artificial intelligence entity driven by machine learning. It explores the hegemony of algorithmic decisions vs. a human being’s messy emotions, both as a performer’s brainwaves are displayed on their body as flashes of varicolored light, and through the projection of a colored graphic indicating a semantic analysis in a connected feedback loop.
