What is Athena? #Athena is a standard way (a platform) for computers to understand human emotions. Its algorithm works based on principles of psychology, more specifically, on 20 years of research into the topic of #SensationSeeking. The system can be used to predict human behavior when choosing multimedia entertainment content. For example, it can learn your personality and automatically recommend songs or movies that match your emotional state. What makes it unique is that it gets more intelligent as you use more frequently. Thanks to everyone who showed up and tried it out. I’m glad to have presented its success in front of talented artists such as #FriederNake. Athena’s performance so far has been a complete success. Satisfaction rate was above 70%, which automatically makes it a better option than traditional recommendation systems such as Netflix’s.
