A visionary world premier: Fraunhofer IIS presents world's first emotion detection app on Google Glass
Erlangen, Germany, August 27, 2014: The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS has adapted its SHORE™ real-time face detection and analysis software to work with Google Glass, the first app of its kind. With the aid of Glass’ integrated camera, the app detects people’s faces and determines their emotions by analyzing their facial expressions. The so-called Glassware (Google Glass app) simultaneously gauges the person's age or detects their gender among other things, but it cannot determine their identity. All calculations are performed in real-time by the CPU integrated in the eyewear. The image data never leaves the device.
