Poppy Crum studies how we express emotions -- and she suggests the end of the poker face is near, as new tech makes it easy to see the signals that give away how we're feeling. In a talk and demo, she shows how &quot;empathetic technology&quot; can read physical signals like body temperature and the chemical composition of our breath to inform on our emotional state. For better or for worse. &quot;If we recognize the power of becoming technological empaths, we get this opportunity where technology can help us bridge the emotional and cognitive divide,&quot; Crum says.<br /><p><a href="https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu/news/technology-knows-what-youre-feeling-ted2018-talk-featuring-dr-poppy-crum" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Tue, 19 Jun 2018 21:56:01 +0000 networth 4690 at https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu CCRMA's SLOrk Featured in Wired Magazine https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu/news/ccrmas-slork-featured-in-wired-magazine <h2>The Aural Magic of Stanford's Laptop Orchestra</h2> <br /> <img src="/sites/default/files/user/networth/orchestra-main.jpg" alt="" width="350" height="218" border=".5" /><br /><p><a href="https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu/news/ccrmas-slork-featured-in-wired-magazine" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Thu, 14 Jun 2018 20:57:55 +0000 networth 4688 at https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu CCRMA: Award-winning Faculty! https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu/news/ccrma-award-winning-faculty Please join us in contratulating Dr. Poppy Crum upon receiving two recent awards!

Listeners have strong feelings about favorite pieces, even when they are open to fresh interpretive approaches.<br /> <br /> The stakes are even higher with a premiere.

Very interesting article about her work with master musicians suffering from dementia.<br /> <br /> From the article: At first glance, she was elderly and delicate &ndash; a woman in her 90s with a declining memory. But then she sat down at the piano to play. &ldquo;Everybody in the room was totally startled,&rdquo; says Eleanor Selfridge-Field, who researches music and symbols at Stanford University. &ldquo;She looked so frail. Once she sat down at the piano, she just wasn&rsquo;t frail at all. She was full of verve.&rdquo; <a href="https://www.newscientist.com/article/2096525-mystery-of-101-year-old-master-pianist-who-has-dementia/" target="_blank">Read more here...</a> https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu/news/mystery-of-101-year-old-master-pianist-who-has-dementia#comments https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu/crss/node/4262 Thu, 11 Aug 2016 00:26:20 +0000 networth 4262 at https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu Congratulations Guggenheim Fellows Jonathan Berger and Ge Wang! https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu/news/congratulations-guggenheim-fellows-jonathan-berger-and-ge-wang <img src="/sites/default/files/user/networth/berger_j." width="300" height="263" alt="" /><img src="/sites/default/files/user/networth/ge-1a.jpg" width="204" height="275" alt="" /><img src="/sites/default/files/user/networth/berger_j." width="0" height="0" alt="" /><img src="/sites/default/files/user/networth/berger_j." width="0" height="0" alt="" /><img src="/sites/default/files/user/networth/berger_j." width="0" height="0" alt="" />&nbsp;<img src="/sites/default/files/user/networth/berger_j." width="0" height="0" alt="" /><br /><p><a href="https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu/news/congratulations-guggenheim-fellows-jonathan-berger-and-ge-wang" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu/news/congratulations-guggenheim-fellows-jonathan-berger-and-ge-wang#comments https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu/crss/node/4209 Wed, 06 Apr 2016 19:06:13 +0000 networth 4209 at https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu Jonathan Berger's "My Lai" In the News https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu/news/jonathan-bergers-my-lai-in-news All kinds of new buzz in being generated by our own Jonathan Berger's latest opera <em>My Lai. </em>Congratulations, Jonathan and the Kronos Quartet!<br /> <br /> &quot;In <em>My Lai</em>, a monodrama for tenor, string quartet, and Vietnamese instruments, composer Jonathan Berger had countless tragic elements at his disposal... In this immersive performance, we had the sense that, rather than defaulting to the story's obvious tragic details, Berger illuminate a single, more subtle element - the outraged bewilderment we often feel in the face of unimaginable horror.&quot;<br /> <p>&nbsp;</p><p><a href="https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu/news/jonathan-bergers-my-lai-in-news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu/news/jonathan-bergers-my-lai-in-news#comments https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu/crss/node/4156 Wed, 03 Feb 2016 20:34:38 +0000 networth 4156 at https://cm-wiki.stanford.edu
