Unsupervised Sentiment Neuron
While training the linear model with L1 regularization, we noticed it used surprisingly few of the learned units. Digging in, we realized there actually existed a single “sentiment neuron” that’s highly predictive of the sentiment value.

The most systematic effort to piece all the tests together is ‘ConsScale’, a rating procedure developed in 2008 by the Spanish AI researcher Raúl Arrabales Moreno and his colleagues. You fill in a checklist, beginning with anatomical features, on the assumption that human-like consciousness arises only in systems with the right components. Does the system have a body? Memory? Attentional control? Then you look for behaviours and communicativeness: Can it recognise itself in a mirror? Can it empathise? Can it lie?

For example, one of our customers, Redfin, plan to use the Google Maps APIs to predict how long it will take to drive between homes, so they will use the pessimistic traffic model to ensure there’s enough travel time taking traffic into account. On the other hand, a developer building thermostat app wants their user’s house to be warm by the time they get home from work, so they would use the optimistic travel time estimate to calculate when their user is likely to get home, and when their thermostat needs to turn on.

The Long View | When Computers Know How You Feel
There are a lot of channels from which we can distil a range of emotional states. The face is one of the most powerful social and emotional communication channels. It can communicate everything from joy to interest to disgust to confusion to worry. Our gestures are also important — both head gestures and body movements. Similarly our voice carries information on our emotional states. There are also physiological measures. You can look at skin conductance, which is the level of sweat on your skin — and that gives you a measure of arousal, how activated or calm you are.
