Emotionally Aware Video Chat with Affectiva and Twilio

Embedding communications in mobile apps will unlock a range of analytical and machine-learning techniques that were difficult or impossible to achieve with traditional communications stacks. In this workshop, we build an iOS application that is capable of understanding and recording the emotions of video call participants. Will include live coding and a starter project.
