Rosalind W. Picard

Prof. Rosalind W. Picard, is a founder and director of the Affective Computing Research Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Laboratory, co-director of the Things That Think Consortium, the largest industrial sponsorship organization at the lab, and leader of the new and growing Autism Communication Technology Initiative at MIT. In April 2009 she co-founded Affectiva, Inc., where she serves as chairman and chief scientist.

Picard holds a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering with highest honors from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and master's and doctorate degrees, both in electrical engineering and computer science, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Prior to completing her doctorate at MIT, she was a Member of the Technical Staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories where she designed VLSI chips for digital signal processing and developed new methods of image compression and analysis. In 1991 she joined the MIT Media Lab faculty. She became internationally known for constructing mathematical texture models for content-based retrieval of images, for creating new tools such as the Photobook system, and for pioneering methods of automated search and annotation in digital video. The year before she was up for tenure, she published the award-winning book Affective Computing, which was instrumental in starting a new field by that name. Picard has been awarded dozens of distinguished and named lectureships internationally and in 2005 was honored as a Fellow of the IEEE for contributions to image and video analysis and affective computing.

Rosalind W. Picard

Prof. Deborah Estrin (Ph.D., MIT, 1985; B.S., UCBerkeley, 1980) is a Professor of Computer Science at UCLA and Founding Director of the NSF-funded Center for Embedded Networked Sensing (CENS). Estrin's current work focuses on participatory sensing systems, leveraging the location, image, and user-contributed data streams increasingly available globally from mobile smartphones. Projects include Participatory Sensing campaigns for civic engagement, and privacy-aware self-monitoring applications for health and wellness. Estrin's recognitions include: Anita Borg Institute's Women of Vision Award for Innovation and election to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering. Estrin was honored as the winner of the SIGMOBILE's 2009 Outstanding Contributions Award.
