The Emotion Machine – Rana Gujral, Behavioral Signals – Voice Tech Podcast ep.035

Rana Gujral Behavioural Signals

Episode description

Rana Gujral is the CEO of Behavioral Signals, a company that allows developers to add speech emotion and behavioral recognition AI to their products. We discuss the many reasons why it’s important that machines can recognise and express human emotion, including improving human computer interaction and boosting business KPIs.

We discover why voice is the best modality for analysing emotion, then highlight some of the many business and consumer use-cases for this technology. Finally we dive into the signal processing pipeline that makes it all work, and Rana shares his advice for working with this technology.

This is one of my favourite conversations of the year so far. It’s a topic close to my heart, having previously worked on voice emotion transformation in the lab, and I feel it’s one of the most important technologies to close the gap between humans and machines. Rana is also a very articulate and inspirational speaker, which makes this an unmissable conversation.
