Don’t Look Now But MIT Has Algorithm That Can Tell Why You’re Smiling [Video]
The simple smile, our way of indicating our pleasure over something or someone, is something that we don’t really think of all that much unless you are a researcher at MIT it would seem.
As they put it there are actually two different types of smiles. There’s the regular smile indicating happiness about something and then there is the one that we use to show fake happiness when something, or someone, frustrates us.
So being MIT they figured out that there had to be some sort of algorithm they could come up with to be able to tell the difference between the two types, and guess what – there is and it’s being packaged up at “smile-tech” which scores a 90% accuracy rating when determining which type of smile is being used in a photograph.
