Artificial Emotional Intelligence

Summary: A British computer scientist has created a computer program that recognizes facial expressions. Imagination-challenged marketeers have all kinds of brain-dead ideas for how to incorporate this new technology into their status objects and gee whiz gizmos. Of course, the real killer ap will be the next iteration of World of Warcraft.

One interesting bit:
"The computer is 85% accurate when analyzing data provided by actors," Robinson said while unveiling the computer at the Royal Society in London in early July.

At present, the machine is only correct 65% of the time when evaluating the emotions of regular people in real world situations.


I can see this technology, in not quite working, conditioning the digerati to exagerate their facial expressions. Imagine a wannabe high-power saleryman sitting in his Beemer mugging for the camera in his dash-board trying to get his car to pick up on his mood.
