【你的手机知道你在做什么甚至知道你的感觉】

【你的手机知道你在做什么甚至知道你的感觉】卡内基梅隆大学的一个团队开发了一款名为IntraFace的APP,它的面部识别功能让你的手机只需看着你便能知道你在做什么,它甚至能注意到你细微的表情,知道你的感觉。这款APP用到驾驶上,可减少司机分心,日后甚至能用于抑郁症和焦虑症的治疗。

Your mobile could know what you're doing and even how you FEEL: App brings advanced facial recognition to smartphones

  • IntraFace app was developed by a team at Carnegie Mellon University
  • It can identify facial features and even pick up on emotions
  • A free smartphone demo of the app can be downloaded online
  • Software could be used to recognise distracted drivers, or on dating apps

Your smartphone may soon be able to detect what you're doing just by looking at you.

Facial recognition software is responsible for the likes of Facebook auto-tagged photos, and FBI face matching, and it could make its way to smartphones in 2016.

The IntraFace app, developed by a team of researchers at Carnegie Mellon University, can identify facial features and even pick up on emotions.

The advanced facial image analysis software was created out of the Human Sensing Laboratory at Carnegie Mellon, according to The Washington Post.

Current facial recognition software relies on intricate computational processes. For applications more advanced than simple photo-matching, this software can be very difficult to use.

IntraFace developers hope that the ease of this technology will open up new possibilities for the uses of facial recognition.

A video from the lab shows how this software could be used to recognise a distracted driver, and help to correct the behaviour.

In the video, IntraFace warns a father that he's veered off the road, after he turns around to comfort his crying child while driving.

The team now hopes that opening up this software to more people will allow other researchers to expand upon the possible applications.

'Now it's time to develop new applications for this technology,' lead researcher Fernando De la Torre, associate research professor in the Carnegie Mellon robotics department, told The Washington Post.

'We have a few of our own, but we believe there are lots of people who may have even better ideas once they get their hands on it.'

To do so, the team has created a free smartphone demo of the app, which can be downloaded on their website.

While the full app is still in the development process, the team says many other researchers are already using it for their own studies.

A program of this kind could be useful in a medical or clinical setting, helping to monitor conditions including depression or anxiety based on the facial expressions of patients.

At Duke University, medical researchers are using the software as a part of an advanced autism screening process, and The Washington Post writes that the program could even be used in a national security setting, helping to recognize the face of a terrorist in a crowd.

IntraFace could even have marketing applications, allowing advertisers to determine the 'audience reaction measurement,' based on facial reactions to billboards or similar displays.

Or, dating apps could harness the technology to help users read the facial expressions of their online romantic interests.

While the technology has a wide appeal, it may not be well-received all around. Some could argue that this type of software will pose an issue of privacy.

De la Torre and colleagues, including Jeffrey Cohn, a professor of psychology and psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh and adjunct professor in CMU's Robotics Institute, have spent a decade developing the software, according to The Washington Post.
