Matt Dobson is from the United Kingdom. With his team he is building software that is sensitive to the tone of the voice. They do this by determining  emotions in real-time from features within voices using sophisticated smartphone technology. He calls it the concept of empathetic algorithms, algorithms that analyze the tonal expression of the human voice, specifically looking at “acoustic features”, rather than verbal content. He believes in self-awareness tools to help  patients and therapy-providers to better identify situations leading to negative emotions and behaviors.
