SHORE® Face Detection and Analysis Software – Empathy for your Technology

Human facial expression says more than words. As a tool of our feelings, it transmits both conscious as well as unconscious emotions. Our facial expressions can underline verbal statements or contradict them.

In order to make exactly these unconscious or contradictory emotional expressions recognizable, software-supported analysis of facial expressions can be an important component in your system, especially in application areas where authentic and spontaneous user reactions are required.
