Our technology leadership and world-class scientific advisors are part of a larger network of Europe’s top universities and organisations. Through several grants received from the European Union and the European Commission, we’ve had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects that have strengthened our capabilities, our technology, and provided our team with extremely valuable experience.
By partnering with Imperial College and the University of Passau, the academic leaders in the fields of sentiment detection from computer vision and audio analysis, we aim to develop computers’ abilities to analyse and understand people’s emotions and behaviours using facial, vocal and verbal analysis. We want to develop the ability of standard webcams to automatically detect more complex behavioural and affective states than the six basic emotions – whether a person likes or dislikes what they’re seeing, for instance, or whether they’re bored.

Maja Pantic, Professor of Affective Computing at Imperial and Realeyes Scientific Advisor, was interviewed by Charlie Rose on a CBS 60 Minutes report on Artificial Intelligence. As she explains, enabling machines to better understand people adds a human element to data-driven decision-making, ultimately ensuring that computers are better able to make the right decisions. Equally, emotion-enabled technology could change the way we interact with technology around us – be it our computers, our phones, the music we listen to or the videos we're watching. Eventually, computers will be better than we areat reading emotions – and able to detect nuances than humans might miss.
