EMOTION AND YOU
IS EMOTION UNIVERSAL?
Emotion is a highly universal way of knowing. Rana el Kaliouby is an egyptian scientist who has been dedicating to develop a technology that is capable of recognizing human emotions from a person’s facial expressions. The technology is based upon a massive database that collects the information about a human’s facial expressions and thus is capable of recognizing them from a real human being’s face, after analyzing the specific movements of the person’s facial muscles. As large numbers of emotion data points were gathered around the world, certain trends and characteristics can be thus concluded from the database. The developer looks forward to the usage of this technology to bring human emotions into the digital world that currently dominates. This technology, thus, is a direct proof of how emotion is a universal concept native to every single human beings.
