DSI faculty and Assistant Professor of Information Nazanin Andalibi has received a grant from the National Science Foundation to further her work on emotion recognition. This funding comes from the NSF's EAGER: SaTC program, which supports exploratory work on potentially transformative research ideas in cybersecurity education.
Andalibi's project is titled "Towards Accounting for the Human in Emotion Recognition Technologies." Per the proposal, "this project takes steps toward addressing users' privacy and other concerns by investigating people's attitudes towards emotion recognition and how users and technologists conceive of this technology. . . . Technologists, policy makers, and researchers in fields such as computing, economics, and medicine can use this project's resulting framework to evaluate systems' potential implications."
