Google Glass Can Now Read Your Emotions
Germany’s Fraunhofer Institute is working on bringing facial recognition to Google Glass. Researchers are working on creating an app for the wearable electronic device that allows users to identify a person(s)’s level of emotion. It also estimates gender and age.
It can analyze facial features by comparing your subject to a database of over 10,000.
The software is being called SHORE (Sophisticated High-Speed Object Recognition).
Good news is that this technology could potentially be useful for some individuals on the autism spectrum. People with autism often struggle with reading emotions, which can lead to social isolation. With this app, they’ll be able to recognize how those around them feel and can react appropriately with confidence.
Watch a demonstration of the SHORE technology in the video below.
