Now, a Google Glass app that reads emotions, also reveals age
What if an app can reveal what the person you are engaged in a conversation with is thinking?
This Google Glass - a soon to be launched smart eye-wear - app not only does that for you but can also tell the person’s age!
The emotion recognition software analyses the video on the tiny computer hidden inside the Google eye-wear and reveals emotions.
It can gauge various emotions such as anger, happiness, shock, sadness and surprise.
The device also displays this particular information on the screen, media reports said.
‘This opens up an entire spectrum of new smart eye-wear applications, including communication aids for people with certain disorders such as autism.
‘People with such disorders have difficulty in interpreting various emotions through facial expressions.’
‘This device can assist them easily in recognising the emotions of other people,’ its developers from Germany-based Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits were quoted as saying.
The application is ‘trained’ by accessing a database of more than 10,000 annotated faces.The technology is also available for desktop computers, reports added.
