Facial displays are an important channel for the expression of emotions, and are often thought of as projections of a person’s mental state. Computer systems generally ignore this information. Mind-reading interfaces infer users’ mental states from facial expressions, giving them a degree of emotional intelligence. We use video processing to track two dozen features on the user’s face. These are then interpreted using statistical techniques through a hierarchy of analyses as basic actions, head and facial gestures, and finally groups of mental states. The talk will describe an implementation of facial affect inference, together with an evaluation and some preliminary results of using the system to monitor car drivers.
