Professor Peter Mantello (College of Asia Pacific Studies) is part of an international team awarded a £50,000 grant from the UK-based Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) for a one-year project called ‘Emotional AI: Comparative Considerations for UK and Japan across Commercial, Political and Security Sectors’.
Mantello, working with Professors Andrew McStay and Vian Bakir from Bangor University and Dr. Lachlan Urquhart from University of Edinburgh, will examine the use of emotional artificial intelligence and affective computing technologies in different contexts of everyday life. As part of the project they will present a series of workshops in Japan and the United Kingdom, as well as a special set of open lectures at APU for students and faculty.
The workshop series will consist of two workshops held in Tokyo in July 2019, and one follow up workshop in London in September 2019. The APU lectures, presented with the support of the Research Office, are scheduled for July. Times and location will be announced in the near future.
For more information on the workshops, including dates and locations, please see the official workshop site on the Bangor University homepage:
