Emotions Detection: Microsoft may detect your emotions through facial expression


Microsoft will soon introduce one of its new technologies (Emotions Detection) API to developers.

Developers will soon get access to one of Microsoft’s advanced tools for Emotions Detection.
The tech giant’s cutting edge cloud-based emotion recognition algorithms will let you build more personalized applications. The technology identifies emotions in the wild based on facial expressions that are universal.

Currently, Microsoft has released the Demo tool for its emotion recognition technology API, which will guess how you’re feeling based on your facial expression.

The demo allows you to upload your own photos directly from your computer through folders or URLs, or drag-and-drop an image from your computer. Although, the image you want to upload has to be at least 36 pixels square and smaller than 4MB in size.

The Emotions recognition technology is another great tool currently in the development stage by one of Microsoft’s subsidiaries “Project Oxford API’s”.

The Emotions Recognition API:

According to “Project Oxford API’s” website: “The Emotion API takes an image as an input, and returns the confidence across a set of emotions for each face in the image, as well as bounding box for the face, using the Face API. If a user has already called the Face API, they can submit the face rectangle as an optional input.

The emotions detected are anger, contempt, disgust, fear, happiness, neutrality, sadness, and surprise. These emotions are understood to be cross-culturally and universally communicated with particular facial expressions.”

Although, the Emotions detection technology has been considered not close to reliable for now, the demo is still kind of fun to use.
