Soon, your phones will be able to tell how you feel [Asian News International]
(Asian News International Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Washington, March 9 (ANI): Many of the projects that were unveiled last year aim to give mobile apps the ability to detect a person's emotional state.
A startup called Affectiva, which emerged out of MIT's Media Lab, launched a software developer kit (SDK) for its emotion-tracking technology.
The company claims that it is possible to assess the effect that ads and branding have on a person if that person's facial expressions are analyzed through the camera of a mobile device, PC World reported.
Another startup, Emotient is developing its facial-recognition emotion-sensing technology, especially an API for third-party software development.
A Norwegian computer scientist named Audun Oygard has developed a face-reading tool called CLMtrackr.
CLMtrackr's reads facial expressions and interprets them based on thousands of previous models. Essentially, the technology creates green lines that are based on 70 specific points on the human face, and then compares the relative orientation of those lines to past examples. (ANI)
