Emotion recognition through Deep Learning in the IoT space for a better Ambient Intelligence.

A session at IoT Conference May 4-5 2015, Santa Clara, CA, USA

Tuesday 5th May, 2015

2:20pm to 3:00pm (PST)

This session will reveal a novel use of Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) as a Deep Learning architecture towards the creation of a facial expression recognition vocabulary. The first half of this session will cover how this new approach in the IoT space allows vision software algorithms to read micro-expressions in real-time with a high level of accuracy, speed and customization. The second half of this session will reveal a number of current industry verticals, in the IoT space and others, that are benefiting today from integrating emotion recognition technology into their commercial applications to amplify context awareness; and subsequently, enhance users experiences through better Ambient Intelligence. This session will include a highly rated live demo on stage!
