For her ARTE TV documentary "Die Vermessung der Gefühle" the filmmaker Luise Wagner and her team embarked on an exciting journey into the world of emotions and affective computing. Visiting leading labs, they interviewed scientists in the States and in Europe and met emotionally intelligent virtual humans, who “work” as coaches and assist psychologists. Examining how emotions can be deciphered by machines and how machines learn to be empathic, the documentary examines the emotional trust, we now place in algorithms and computers. Providing insight into ground breaking research and AI experiments a selection of the interviews, which Wagner and her team collated in the process of making "Die Vermessung der Gefühle", will loop throughout the festival period.
