Q: Can machines perceive our emotions?

Algorithms are everywhere, governments and institutions are using them, they make decisions about us, how do we monitor them and are they beneficial?

Join our two speakers as we chat all things AI and delve into the experiments at UniSA using facial technology and what this might mean for ‘everyday’ people from a legal perspective.
