Device recognition emotions

Sommige mensen, met name hen met een autistische gedragsstoornis, zijn slecht in staat geirriteerdheid of verveeldheid van anderen te herkennen. Voor hen kan het volgende wellicht uitkomst bieden:
The "emotional social intelligence prosthetic" device, which El Kaliouby is constructing along with MIT colleagues Rosalind Picard and Alea Teeters, consists of a camera small enough to be pinned to the side of a pair of glasses, connected to a hand-held computer running image recognition software plus software that can read the emotions these images show. If the wearer seems to be failing to engage his or her listener, the software makes the hand-held computer vibrate.
