Computers when invented changed the human lifestyle and the entire world. We can say that everything today depends on the computer. It has become necessary for the existence of human beings on the earth. Thus knowing the importance of a computer and its technology, in human life and getting inspired by psychology and the human interest in machine learning-enabled the technicians develop a mind-reading machine.
The objective of Mind-Reading Computer
A mind-reading machine is a gadget, which enables the computer to read the mind of humans through their facial expressions. The main objective behind this gadget is to increase the effectiveness of human interaction with the computer.
This improves the output and allows running the application without any user’s input or response. This means the computer does not have to wait for input from the user to run the application. However, with this advanced technology, there are some challenges, which may create hurdles for the user.
A prior gesture is being installed in the gadget, which enables it to match the user’s expression and predict the mental state of the person. That is, with the help of a webcam the mind-reading system examines the user’s facial expression and concludes the person’s mental state. It could be angry, agree-disagree, bored, excited, and rational or tangled expression.
Past information on how a specific conceptual situation is conveyed through the facial expression is then combined with the analysis system of the facial expression. The head movement and the facial gesture are analyzed and the model of the user’s perception is represented. With the help of software and their technology, the facial feature is identified and being tracked. The head movement, shape, and color are analyzed indicating then the expression of happiness with a smile on the face. For instance, if there is a smile on the face and you nod your head then it would be an indication of being interested in the activity.
