how are you feeling today? what is happening? i am putting emt sensors on your trapezoids. on my trapezoids? yes. me, i'm a little embarrassed due to the nature of the outfits. of course it is bright green. this makeshift motion capture suit is going to measure my emotions. at university college
1:32 am
london researchers believe it is queuesin london researchers believe it is queues in your body that give away your emotional state. using multiple sensors, your emotional state. using multiple sensors, this bodysuit measures my movements, energy and posture, all strong indicators of how we are feeling. what? the work here at ucl aims to detect stress in workers, measures like a logical states, depression and pain and aid rehabilitation. if you are embarrassed you tend to hide. we for exa m ples embarrassed you tend to hide. we for examples study how people laugh when they are embarrassed and when they laugh and they are really happy and there is a very different type of movement and again, so when you are more positive, you tend to open your proud of yourself, you tend to open your shoulders, they aren't tending to be more slightly away from your body. is this better than looking at someone's face tojudge body. is this better than looking at someone's face to judge a motion? body. is this better than looking at someone's face tojudge a motion?m very emotional situation, we have
1:33 am
been shown data that the body is more informative than the face. if you want to idea of emotion you control your face and you forget about your body so the body leaks or you over control the body so you just do move anymore and this sense something is wrong and then of course we can measure information about the dynamic of the movement, the speed, the jerkiness, about the dynamic of the movement, the speed, thejerkiness, of about the dynamic of the movement, the speed, the jerkiness, of the movement, if you were angry you tend to be —— tend to havejerky movements. the have also developed a novel use your smartphone using infrared sensors, this phone has been reached test stress levels through breathing patterns. to put it to the test, the team gave me some mathematics problems to solve, yes, like being back at school, brilliant. what? no! got that wrong! nadia hopes to eventually put these kind of sensors into clothing to help patients and people in pain.
1:34 am
this emotional insight is valuable in other ways too. there are some people such as people on the autism spectrum that tends not to be able to interpret actually the emotions and expressions of themselves and the people that they see, that they communicate, so in that sense, it can make claims that training or creating computing technology might be better than them in terms of such interpretation or can even help them as assistive technologies. you are forgiven. facial expressions obviously give away a whole host of non—verbal information and there are companies were trying to uncover your hidden reactions to better market their products. emotional data can be used against us because we always feel something, so although we think we are logical beings, research shows that even when we are not aware, even when we are not conscious, we always have a feeling about things. you like it or
1:35 am
not, you dislike it or not, and that actually affects our decisions, effects even our learning, our attention, all of that. your emotional responses are a key component in purchasing. even if you don't realise it. and companies want that crucial motion data. welcome to the world of neuro marketing. realise whose clothes have in clued up realise whose clothes have in clued up mars and lg specialise in motion detection and neuro marketing. they used facial queues to get consumers reactions when viewing advert that m essa 9 es reactions when viewing advert that messages can be refined to hit the right spot. and i'm putting that to the test with the help of some classic bbc clips. nice and cool, son, nice and cool, you know what i mean? using just the web cam, realise going to measure my
1:36 am
emotional response. so you are clearly mapping pictures of the face and is it enough to look at the eyebrows to see surprise and the curve of the mouth to see happiness or sadness? yeah, the face is surprisingly revealing. we here understand quite what reform bodyline which quite well, it is 80% of our communication, but computers have not had the ability until now. right now, we work with marketing because emotions drive people to enter more people feel the more they tend to do so we see in real time how people respond and pick up the signal, where is the true emotional connection between a band and an audience? many people would find a creepy that their computer is starting to read their emotions. possibly tailor what they see, either to influence them orjust to
1:37 am
respond to their emotions. in that sense, i don't think the emotional analysis is any different to any new technology, people are always sceptical in the beginning of what tends to happen is that at some point when this technology really sta rts point when this technology really starts to help people in different ways, then they understand the value of it and it becomes normal. emotion and data are combining in ways that will radically transform our relationship with machines. that could be a fantasy medical diagnoses orjust to learn more about how strange human sense of humour. my apologies. and imagine this, in the future, your emotions could influence the things that you watch. jamie cripps acres been to see a film where the plot changes depending on your reactions. —— jan

cope stake. as a world becomes more augmented by technology. the line between fiction and reality are blurring. very soon we may be able to entertain ourselves in these new realities complete by using our thoughts. and here at the university of nottingham where i might to see the greatest film that has never been made because it is being made by me using my brain waves. this must be it. this tiny adapted ca rava n must be it. this tiny adapted caravan is where i will watch the movie my mind most wants to see. so we're just movie my mind most wants to see. so we'rejust going to movie my mind most wants to see. so we're just going to fix you with his e.g. headset. it clips on and then there is a sensor on your forehead. to this eeg headset is monitoring my brain activity? it picks up eeg data, the really tiny logical sentinels sent off the firing neurons of the signal is good, we will play, enjoy. i remember you had become all different people. there are three simultaneous narrative that my brain can dip in and out of the make up a unique film. with over
1:39 am
101 the make up a unique film. with over ioi trillion possible combinations per viewing. is that my brain activity now? this is your data, yes, you can see your ulfa waves, your gamma waves, your beta waves there. they are just sending out a string of numbers. the more focused my brain is, the longer the scenes and the more the narrative pulls together and if i lose focus, the computer cuts that seems more rapidly. sir it is a pretty surreal experience watching a film that you are creating as you are coming along. the whole concept behind this project as a whole was it was inspired by what was happening with these social media bubbles that are still about a ring like 2016 we saw game gate with brexit with the american election and how like a small group of people could influence larger groups. the moment is designed to be watched twice in a row by groups of around five where
1:40 am
two people take turns watching the movie with a headset on. people than observe the different ways the narrative changes. how did you find the film? interesting. to make you think about relationship with technology? for me, yes, and also a little bit about like society, about like people not thinking about what they are doing. i always prefer having an artist picking a message for me and then it does whatever it does to me rather than mimicking my own message, it feels like i am living in my own bubble. own message, it feels like i am living in my own bubblelj own message, it feels like i am living in my own bubble. i would like the artist to make the film for me, i don't want to live inside my bubble more than i already do. it is a bit scary. yes, it is a bit scary. the endgame really is is to ask people to consider critically the technology we use and why is it being used in that way? the moment has its world premiere at sheffield documentary fest on june seven has its world premiere at sheffield documentary fest onjune seven and after that the caravan will hit the road after that the caravan will hit the roa d a cross after that the caravan will hit the road across the uk. hello and
1:41 am
welcome to the week in tech. it was the week that facebook boss luxembourg apologised to members of the european parliament to the company ‘s role in the cambridge and let the g'day the scandal. he apology didn't go down well though as of the vote was accused of not answering many of the questions put to him. publisher epic games announced it will be offering a prize pot of more than £75 million for its upcoming fortnight tournaments. the bumper bundle of readies is believed to be the biggest sum of money ever offered foran biggest sum of money ever offered for an east sports event. it was also the week that barack and michelle 0bama signed a multi—year deal with streaming drives netflix to produce content that could potentially include scripted series, unscripted series, documentaries, doc you series and features. that should keep them busy for a while. and you may think that acrobat is onejob which is and you may think that acrobat is one job which is completely safe
1:42 am
from the upcoming robot revolution. well, think again, as no less than the disney research hub have shown off stick man, an acrobatic robots that can backflip through the air. dick man uses motion sensing, laser rangefinders and computer vision to stick that perfect landing. well, kind of. —— stick man uses motion sensing, laser rangefinders and computer vision to stick that perfect landing. well, kind of. the royal wedding, a once—in—a—lifetime opportunity to see history am polled, drink pins, and spot the stars. so many faces to see, so many stories to know. but we cannot all have access to thousands of pages of scintillating who's who information like me. look, it is william guy vestey, the eldest son of single and cecilia vestey, he is married to violet henderson to whom he has one daughter. fascinating.
1:43 am
and fortunately this royal wedding, you do not need any of these to stay in the know. this is who's who, it isa in the know. this is who's who, it is a website for phones and desktops that uses artificial intelligence automatically recognise all of those royal wedding guest. from the famous to the more obscure, each guest face is take with their name and some background info. plus the tool was used to run the watch your favourite guest arrived. but by day the company grey matter, and broadcast by sky news, it is the first and they have used facial recognition for a live broadcast. who's who, the royal wedding project, was an opportunity to use artificial intelligence to find a different way of telling a story. we knew that with celebrities who was would be able to identify them without the softwa re able to identify them without the software and the velage members of the royal family particularly the extended royal family who were public and therefore would be able to identify them, they wouldn't necessarily be obvious to a viewing public, the bot would be able to do
1:44 am
was to open by them as they arrived as well some of the other guest to get a richer experience. at the cloud race recognition system from amazon, through photos or video at recognition and steep learning algorithms are put to work to try to figure out what exactly is going on. that is easy enough for us humans but for computers, understanding what is happening in videos and images is no simple task. this is what amazon recognition looks like behind the scenes. i have uploaded a clip from the cosmic click and in a few minutes it has given me lists of objects and activities that it is sound and video. things like this cycling, the faces of these bystanders, and click post and celebrity urban may. the facial recognition today isn't perfect. even though we trained a model based on anticipated guests, you know, we we re on anticipated guests, you know, we were getting the e— 80% accuracy. it was moderated by the research is who
1:45 am
had curated all the training material for the ai had curated all the training material for the a! service in the first place, so they were very familiar with the names, the people, the faces. but even if you don't know your meghan markle from your angela merkel, techniques like these are already finding uses in other areas. to the new york times built something to help report recognise members of congress. who the hill allows users to upload photos before they are identified in the cloud. it is trained in existing pictures of members of congress to me give more accurate. what would you like the idea of being instantly and automatically identified without your consent? this week sees the start of gdpr, the new, stricter data legislation in the eu, many metals like these might no longer be legal. we were looking at public
1:46 am
people in a public environment where they are expecting to be recognised, which gives us imply consent. in a post gdpr world you need exposing consent, which means that if we wa nted consent, which means that if we wanted to run this thing in the future we would have two contact people and say this is what we are doing ina people and say this is what we are doing in a particular environment. we would consider that if we go forward with this project, or we may consider to do alternative things of this technology. just this week and has found itself in hot water after they found that they had been marketing recognition systems to law enforcement agencies in america. as technology like this because more accurate and widely used, we could all be as recognisable as the royal family. that was steve and his bunting. and if you want to try image recognition via cell, you could have a go with the blipper up, which is doing a good job recognising objects as well as basis. —— app. it has been trained on specially curated datasets,
1:47 am
categories like cars, landmarks, works of art, dogs and cats and flowers, which means that once it is recognise an object he can go into quite a bit of detail about it. and also show you its knowledge graph which is a web of all be connected themes that surround the object that it can see. blipper is really made for augmented reality marketing campaigns and also educational experiences, which means it is better at recognising some things than others. and, let's face it, it is trained to do to really hard task here: first began an object in the scene, and then somehow match it to its training images. but it can recognise more general objects under the right conditions. the things it finds hardest to recognise images which are deformable, floppy, and don't keep their shape, like clothing and auditions' opinions. they can also do famous faces. it
1:48 am
has to beware for photos of 500,000 famous people in figures. it can even recognise not so famous faces mine. it also recognises faces that are usually hidden behind sci—fi masks, for example, and it even gets carl hammond from brushstrokes. and that, yes, that is definitely lara, who has been to wimbledon pullback theatre, where they are running workshops on how kids can stay safe online. inevitably, kids today are growing up surrounded by technology. there are pros and cons to that. but theissueis there are pros and cons to that. but the issue is that grown—ups are still learning how to handle it.|j can see you are ready to start
1:49 am
again. here at wimbledon's polka theatre, they are hoping to help with creative ways to get the kids thinking. the object represents different websites. the workshop here is just about teaching kids to safely navigate online. it also encourages them to think about what they are going to share and how they are likely to be perceived as a result. after all, this lot are already pretty active web users. life without the internet would be the worst. i would die straightaway. if there is no internet. what if there were no mobile phones? they do have a few concerns. one of the worst things is on your homepage and not knowing your password. the worst thing is when they get a virus. they talk a lot about internet safety, not showing pictures to strangers, don't click on links in e—mails and that sort of thing. but they don't talk about what goes on underneath,
1:50 am
what information the platforms are collecting about you, what we really aimed to do was to raise awareness about how the online world is governed by algorithms and the types of data people share online, the information that goes online, and what i did was a series of projects with 30- 17 what i did was a series of projects with 30— 17 —year—olds, and they are excited, they have grown up online zero they are doing, but they are not sure how everything works. today, working with the younger 8— 90 roles, it is interesting to see they have the same knowledge about this stuff and they are aware and their parents have already brought them up in this world. —— 8—9 year old is. they don't understand what is going on in the background. -- 9—year—olds. is going on in the background. -- 9-year-olds. it is improving with knowledge. use the internet safely and don't on websites that you don't know about. people your personal safe to make stuff safe on internet. if get upset on the internet, always tally your parents. —— keep all your personal stuff safe on the internet.
1:51 am
not surprising when they are part of a generation they could end up surrounded by screams from day one, evenif surrounded by screams from day one, even if they start with the forbidden fruit. it not take long before parents are weighing up the benefits versus the concerns. a two—year—old emily here is part of a study they could change the way with perceived screen time. researchers are three years into their quest to find out what the long—term consequences are likely to be. here it is all about keeping focus on the apple while attention is being called upon elsewhere. the kids reactions are being recorded, and they will be combined with markers in their day—to—day lives. they will be combined with markers in their day-to-day lives. parents a lot of assumptions and maybe fears about how the screens may be influencing their child's behaviour. but a lot of the science behind that is actually based on television, which is different to this interactive mobile devices that can be used in different ways. so we wa nted be used in different ways. so we wanted to make sure that we were doing studies that these new devices. and that means there is not
1:52 am
much sites out there right now. a lot of the concerns parents have not been backed up by scientific evidence. we have found that within the children who are using beta screen devices that the earlier that they actually use a device interactively, the earlier that they reach real world and motor milestones. so, for instance, if you play with the kid, one of the milestones you can look at is if they stack blocks together. and we found that the kids that actively used a touchscreen earlier are reaching a real—world milestone earlier. but importantly we have not seen any signs of delays in which development or in whole body movement development. so walking or crawling, which some parents might have been concerned about. the study also looks at how kids regulate themselves might the point at which they might choose to switch. make sure you interact the real world and those downline too long. it renders can be lonely when you start a new
1:53 am
school this interactive experience deals with the idea that technology can make a full dyke feel that we are pulled in different directions. but sometimes we need to focus. —— can make us feel like we are. this show, random selfies, highlights the loneliness that children or anybody us can loneliness that children or anybody us can deal in our increasingly connected world. so it is about the writer, an 11—year—old girl, it is basically about her discovering loneliness for the first time. —— about loretta. in a world that is very heavy social media. being included in that the feeling that distance. what do you hope that people will go away thinking and feeling after seeing this? of the main things is that loneliness is present. it is they are. but also that it present. it is they are. but also thatitis present. it is they are. but also that it is about to medication and just about opening up and being able
1:54 am
as loretta is to express herself to people, what it is to be lonely and to develop his realisation that it is not just and to develop his realisation that it is notjust and although the social media platform is perhaps making her feel distant, it can be positive, because you are connecting with people. meanwhile, the kids are clearly enjoying the workshops, brooding, if nothing else, they still know how to have fun, if there is no tablet to hand. that was lara looking at some of the efforts to help young people to get to grips with this crazy digital world that we are all living when. talking of craziness, if you are at the hay festival this week, so are we. we are doing a live show me some of which you can see in next week ‘s programme. you can get in touch with us before that on facebook and twitter. thank you for watching. we will see you soon. hello again.
1:55 am
we are all going to see some warm spells of sunshine this weekend but it won't be dry for all of us. we are going to see some pretty big storms which initially affect parts of southern england, wales and the midlands before gradually spreading further north over the next couple of days. quite a misty start to the day round the downs and the chilterns. low cloud and fog patches extending in from east anglia, and across parts of the midlands as well. high pressure in charge across the north, so it will be dry. further south, the risk of some showers. showers will work in early in the morning across southern england, probably the heaviest of these just to the south—west of london. working towards wales in south—west england before fading away during the morning. in the afternoon the cloud will gradually start to break up for many of us with warm spells of sunshine coming through.
1:56 am
in the sunshine, highs of 22 in edinburgh, 26 towards london and the south—east of england. it is during saturday evening that things start to get pretty lively. a clump of thunderstorms working into central and southern england, south—west england, probably wales in the south was midlands as well. these storms are capable of bringing 30 millimetres of rain in the space ofjust one hour, so that could bring localised flooding issues. then the storms will gradually push further north overnight. they will probably weaken at the same time. through the night time it will be another mild and muggy night. temperatures falling no lower than 15 or 16 in the capital. cooler and fresher further north. 0n into sunday's forecast. another day of sunshine and showers. if anything the showers will work a bit further north across wales, the midlands, some heavy downpours across southern england, largely speaking both saturday and sunday will be dry across most
1:57 am
of northern england and scotland. for the most part, northern ireland as well. things will begin to change more on monday as we start to see those showers going further north. we have got a little weather front enhancing the rain as it works into northern england and across the midlands as well. some wetter weather across northern areas of the uk for the holiday monday. further south, probably a bit dry. a few showers. more in the way of sunshine and maybe a slightly fresher feel to the weather as well. still warm, temperatures climbing up to 2a, 25 or 26. a bit cooler and fresher around some of the coast. this holiday weekend, watch out for the risk of localised flooding from these lively, thundery downpours. welcome to bbc news — broadcasting to viewers in north america and around the globe. my name is gavin grey. our top stories: exit polls in ireland's referendum on abortion suggest a big win for the campaign to liberalise the law — the official count begins later. hollywood mogul harvey weinstein is charged with rape and sexual
