  • Whether you’re intrigued or sceptical about it, use of facial recognition technology is growing – and now Fujitsu claims to have developed a way to help track emotions better too.
  • Because of vast amounts of data needed to train an AI to effectively detect emotions, current technologies struggle to recognise what we feel, particularly so if we are not in a prime position – that is, sitting in front of a camera and looking straight into it.
  • After it has been appropriately enlarged, reduced or rotated, the newly-created frontal picture lets the AI detect AUs much more easily – and much more accurately.
