Should This Exist – Affectiva
What if your computer had an “emotion chip” – AI that could read the expression on your face (or the tone in your voice) and know how you’re feeling? This is the question Rana El-Kaliouby asked when she built an AI tool that examines every micro-muscle in the human face to detect universal emotions – happiness, fear, grief, disgust. Through her company Affectiva, Rana wants to make technology more human. But in the wrong hands, could this emotion-reading engine take advantage of us at our most vulnerable moments? What might happen?

The End of the Beginning – Andreessen Horowitz
In his now annual state-of-innovation talk at the a16z Summit in November 2018, Andreessen Horowitz’ Benedict Evans walks through where we are now in software eating the world… and how things may continue to change over the next 10 years.

What’s the state of not just “the world of tech”, but tech in the world? The access story is now coming to an end, observes Evans, but the use story is just beginning: Most of the people are now online, but most of the money is still not. If we think we’re in a period of disruption right now, how will the next big platform shifts — like machine learning — impact huge swathes of retail, manufacturing, marketing, fintech, healthcare, entertainment, and more? Especially as technology begins to tackle bigger problems, in harder markets, at deeper (and more structural) levels?
