Have your photo analysed by emotion recognition software

The research department of the company I work for is working on a new project in cooperation with the University of Amsterdam. Today we launched a new website,, which enables you to have your photo analysed by advanced emotion recogniton software. The technology behind this project is the result of extensive research by the Intelligent Systems Lab Amsterdam. It’s the same technology that was previously used to decode Mona Lisa’s emotions (she was 83% happy!).

I like the fact that the result of scientific research is demonstrated to the public with projects like this. And… it’s a fun way to discover the actual emotions of famous people or your loved ones.

Here comes another bubble

Will there be another bubble in 2008? I don’t know but this song by Richter Scales really made me laugh:
Warning: Robert Scoble had Diet Coke coming out of his nose after watching this.
