This week on The Veritas Forum podcast we’re featuring a conversation with Rosalind Picard, an internationally-recognized researcher in affective computing. Rosalind is the founder and director of the Affective Computing Research Group at MIT, a co-founder of Affectiva, Inc., a co-director of the MIT Autism and Communication Technology Initiative, and the author of over two hundred peer-reviewed scientific articles. In this interview with New York Times columnist Ross Douthat, Rosalind discusses her work in affective computing, her spiritual journey, and how she contextualizes her vocation in light of her Christian faith.
