For millions of years, empathy has evolved in human beings, and has played a big part in increasing the complexity and strength of social interactions at the person-to-person level. What if we could take this just a fraction of this ability of ours, and allow computers to understand empathy as well? That's what we'll talk about in this chapter.
In this chapter, we're going to cover the following topics:
- Introducing empathy
- Understanding the complexities of sentiment
- The functionality of the Tone Analyzer API
- Using natural language to predict personality traits
- Calling the Personality Insights API
