Empathic computing is an emergent paradigm that enables a system to understand human states and feelings and to share this intimate information. [] Key Result From the machine learning algorithm, the accuracy reaches up to 90% from 21 simulated trials. Empathic computing is not limited to healthcare. It can also be applied to solve other everyday-life problems such as management of emails and stress.
