Emotion recognition software detects facial expressions from images or video and returns the probable distribution of each of the six universal emotions: happiness, sadness, anger, fear, surprise, and disgust, and neutral.

How emotion recognition works

Basic emotions were researched by Paul Ekman who supported the view that these emotions are discrete, measurable, and physiologically distinct, which leads to their universal recognition, even in preliterate cultures who could not have learned these associations through modern media.

Basic emotions can be modified to form complex ones, which can arise from cultural conditioning or association. For example, the combination of anger and disgust could be interpreted as contempt. When we analyze the basic emotions such as happiness or sadness, we know that these come in many different degrees, intensities and qualities. Our FaceAnalysis package displays the probability of each emotion. Our experiences often consist of multiple emotions at once, so our emotion recognition software shows the probability distribution of all basic emotions: happiness, sadness, anger, fear, surprise, disgust and neutral.
