Egyptian American woman Rana el Kaliouby is CEO of Affectiva, an emotion-reading technology company. Adrian Lacey catches up with her in London while she’s in town, and discovers she’s no stranger to the city.

They talk about how her company’s technology could help your smartphone know how you feel, which could have repercussions for the treatment of mental illness and autism – and how it’s already helping sell you Kellogg’s cereals!

Adrian links the show from the beautiful Regent’s Park in NW1, which has had a royal connection since the 16th century.
