"A fascinating, and sometimes disturbing, look at a rapidly approaching future where smart machines understand and manipulate our emotionsand ultimately bond with us in ways that blur the line between ourselves and our technology." Martin Ford, New York Times bestselling author of Rise of the Robots: Technology and the Threat of a Jobless Future
Richard Yonck’s Heart of the Machine is a fascinating speculation on the near- and far-term significance of emotions for user interfaces, machine-mediated communication between humans, and what technology and humans may become.” Vernor Vinge, computer scientist and Hugo Awardwinning author of Rainbows End
Your world is about to change in shocking and amazing ways. The line between machines and humanity is blurring giving us a strange and beautiful tomorrow. Yonck takes us on a journey through this world from the science and technology of today and into the possibilities and perils that lay just over the horizon. If you want to catch a glimpse of the future open this book.” Brian David Johnson, former chief futurist at Intel and founder of the 21st Century Robot Project
"[Yonck] makes a compelling argument for why affective computing (technology that can read, interpret, replicate, and experience emotions and use those abilities to influence us) is the key to AI and the heart of how we will work with computers. . . . an engaging read." —Library Journal
Very important for any decision-maker and a must-read for corporations for planning their road map. It is also recommended to everyone who is curious enough to understand the future. Even the very near future.” Yoram Levanon, chief science officer at Beyond Verbal Communication, Ltd.
"How we interact with technology is changing: it is becoming more relational and conversational. Yonck makes a very strong case why our devices and advanced AI systems need to have emotional intelligence, specifically the ability to sense human emotions and adapt accordingly. This book highlights key considerations both for academic researchers as well as business leaders looking for commercial applications of AI." Rana el Kaliouby, cofounder and CEO of Affectiva
"By using the futurist’s most valuable communications toolthe scenarioto introduce his chapters, Yonck moves between anecdotes from research in affective computing and AI/robotics to speculative scenarios, all with the even hand of a skilled storyteller.” —Cynthia G. Wagner, consulting editor at Foresight Signals, former editor of The Futurist magazine
