What do empathy and emotional intelligence mean in modern society? We asked 12 Finnish opinion leaders to share their ideas about empathy in the digital age.

"Empathy seems a bit scarce on the Internet at times. One reason is that interaction online is often text-based, which means that we often have very little information about other people's feelings."

Katri Saarikivi Neuroscientist

"By combining the technical properties of artificial intelligence and people's empathic abilities, we can also make the leap to a new level in social skills and learning."

Jussi Tolvanen CEO, Microsoft Finland

"Online bullying or hate speech have not been caused directly by the Internet or technology, a much larger phenomenon is in question."

Camilla Tuominen Emotional intelligence educator and speaker
