Researcher with computerized conversation assistant

Using his expertise in computer science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, Ehsan Hoque has created an automated conversation assistant that senses body language and emotion. The assistant can be used to enhance communication skills or improve those of persons with developmental disorders with impaired communication skills, such as autism. It can coach job candidates as they prepare for interviews, help someone get ready for a date, assist business professionals with their negotiation strategies, and more. The assistant provides private, real-time, objective feedback that encourages people to practice and improve the quality of their interactions.
