Emotions revealed by Gladorsad.com - Computer software decodes emotions from pictures of faces

23.05.2008
Ilse media and the University of Amsterdam have launched Gladorsad.com, a website which enables the automatic analysis of facial expressions from pictures to reveal someone’s affective state.

By examining key features in pictures of faces such as regions around cheeks, eye-brows and mouth, computer software has been developed which is able to automatically analyze facial expressions to recognize a person’s emotion.

The following emotions can be distinguished: happy, surprised, sad, angry, disgusted and fearful. The same computer software already decoded Mona Lisa’s smile. The result showed that the painting’s famous subject was 83 percent happy and 9 percent disgusted.

The new website allows visitors to upload their pictures. From the uploaded pictures, the website objectively measures the emotion of that person. After emotion recognition, the photos are included in the photo gallery where the explanations of emotions are presented. The software can also be applied to videos.

The new emotion recognition software can be used in a large number of applications such as Internet (video e-mail, MSN, Avatars, Games e.g. Poker), medical applications (detecting mental diseases), commercials and film industry (assessment of a product or commercial), car industry (attention level of the driver), interviews (Detecting the behavior of persons during an interview) and surveillance.

Im Focus: Hamburg and Kiel researchers observe spontaneous occurrence of skyrmions in atomically thin cobalt films

Since their experimental discovery, magnetic skyrmions - tiny magnetic knots - have moved into the focus of research. Scientists from Hamburg and Kiel have now been able to show that individual magnetic skyrmions with a diameter of only a few nanometres can be stabilised in magnetic metal films even without an external magnetic field. They report on their discovery in the journal Nature Communications.

The existence of magnetic skyrmions as particle-like objects was predicted 30 years ago by theoretical physicists, but could only be proven experimentally in...

Im Focus: Physicists create world's smallest engine

Theoretical physicists at Trinity College Dublin are among an international collaboration that has built the world's smallest engine - which, as a single calcium ion, is approximately ten billion times smaller than a car engine.

Work performed by Professor John Goold's QuSys group in Trinity's School of Physics describes the science behind this tiny motor.

Im Focus: Quantum computers to become portable

Together with the University of Innsbruck, the ETH Zurich and Interactive Fully Electrical Vehicles SRL, Infineon Austria is researching specific questions on the commercial use of quantum computers. With new innovations in design and manufacturing, the partners from universities and industry want to develop affordable components for quantum computers.

Ion traps have proven to be a very successful technology for the control and manipulation of quantum particles. Today, they form the heart of the first...

Im Focus: Towards an 'orrery' for quantum gauge theory

Experimental progress towards engineering quantized gauge fields coupled to ultracold matter promises a versatile platform to tackle problems ranging from condensed-matter to high-energy physics

The interaction between fields and matter is a recurring theme throughout physics. Classical cases such as the trajectories of one celestial body moving in the...

Im Focus: A miniature stretchable pump for the next generation of soft robots

Soft robots have a distinct advantage over their rigid forebears: they can adapt to complex environments, handle fragile objects and interact safely with humans. Made from silicone, rubber or other stretchable polymers, they are ideal for use in rehabilitation exoskeletons and robotic clothing. Soft bio-inspired robots could one day be deployed to explore remote or dangerous environments.

Most soft robots are actuated by rigid, noisy pumps that push fluids into the machines' moving parts. Because they are connected to these bulky pumps by tubes,...
