              We are entering an empathy crisis. So much of our communication is conveyed through non-verbal cues - facial expressions, tone of voice, body language - nuances that are completely lost when we interact through our smartphones and other technology. The result is a digital univers...e that's emotion-blind - a society lacking in empathy. Rana al Kaloubi discovered this when she left Cairo, a newly-married, Muslim woman, to take up her place at Cambridge University to study computer science. Many thousands of miles from home, she began to develop systems to help her better connect with her family. She started to pioneer the new field of Emotional Intelligence (EI). She now runs her company, Affectiva (the industry-leader in this emerging field) that builds EI into our technology and develops systems that understand humans the way we understand one another. In a captivating memoir, Girl Decoded chronicles el Kaliouby's mission to humanise technology and what she learns about humanity along the way.

              In the bestselling tradition of Lab Girl, the unforgettable narrative of an Egpytian-American technology pioneer who, after getting her Ph.D in computer science from Cambridge University, founded Affectiva, a leader in the new field of Emotion AI, to build emotional intelligence ...into our computers and transform how we communicate. Ninety-three percent of meaningful communication between people is nonverbal. We glean more information from facial expressions, tone of voice, and body language than we do with language alone. Yet the computers we use every day to communicate with colleagues, clients, and friends are emotionally blind when it comes to recognizing and adapting to our feelings and emotions. With so much of our lives spent interacting with technology, our emotions can get lost. And as a result, our society, Rana el Kaliouby claims, has become less empathetic. In a captivating narrative into the research and developments of Emotion AI, el Kaliouby shows that we are only scratching the surface of our computers' full potential, something she experienced firsthand when she moved to Cambridge from Cairo to pursue her Ph.D., and tried to maintain her relationships at home via email and messenging. It was that experience that helped to drive her research in bringing emotional intelligence to our machines. When Computers Smile brings together el Kaliouby's personal story as a Muslim woman in a coding universe dominated by men, with her pioneering efforts to bring the new universe of Emotion AI into our lives, through her company's work in the automotive industry, health and wellness, and robotics.
