At #NRF17 Google had a really good stand with some far-out, and some not so far-out technology applicable for retail and advertising. They also had a super charming booth crew who were on of the most friendly and approachable at the show.
One part of their stand included a ‘GCP Emotobooth’.
You stood in front of a camera and were asked to show four emotions; Happy, Sad, Anger, Surprise.
Four pictures were then taken…
The system, using the @GoogleCloud Vision API, then analysed your emotions and gave you a success rating; HIGHLY LIKELY through to HIGHLY UNLIKELY.
As far as we could see it worked rather well, analysing the acting abilities of participants correctly.
