Description
"The head of the United Kingdom’s independent privacy watchdog worries highly hyped efforts to use AI to detect people’s emotional states simply may not work, not now, or possibly even ever.

In a first of its kind notice, The Information Commissioner’s Office, Britain’s top privacy watchdog, issued a searing warning to companies against using so-called “emotional analysis” tech, arguing it’s still “immature” and that the risks associated with it far outweigh any potential benefits."
