Psychologist-trained emotion detection software


Intel, in partnership with the software company Classroom Technologies, has developed an AI facial analysis system ("Class") by training an algorithmic model based on labels psychologists applied to the emotions they could detect in videos of students in real-life classrooms. The software is intended to help teachers get feedback from students in online classrooms and warn if the students are bored or confused; critics worry the system could threaten student privacy and damage teacher-student relationships.
