Erick Brethenoux: Emotional analytics: Revealing the "je ne sais quoi"

About this talk: Intriguing fact: adults who share a recovery room with children recover faster than those who don’t. But why? Erick Brethenoux wants to deconstruct complex human emotions by applying big data analytics, so that positive learning like this can be applied more widely. But he also sees the potential for abuse, and explains how we need to tread carefully.
