The US concern Emotient now brings out new software that bears the sensibility of a human as to identify the human emotions like pain, cry, smile, happiness. Even scientists claim that it can at once identify a fake smile. Facet as the name of the software is fitted in a digital camera and while capturing the photo of a person it can recognize the seven human emotions. According to Marian Bartlett, the lead scientist of Emotient, there is always a gap between what people say and what they think. As reported by “Live Science”, this particular software when used in digital camera can recognize the dots by reading the emotion being registered on a person’s face in his/her photograph.
Facet when used in a video series produces successful results, as it can follow the fluctuations in expression and also captures the micro expressions. These are the little flash of emotions that pass across a person’s face even before he could register or control that expression. Bartlett also said that even when we try to remain neutral there are micro expressions over our face which can be captured in the software. The software is also highly sensitive to register faint emotions that human beings often miss.
