Waiting For Face

Waiting for Face examines the use of computer vision for inferring human emotions. Through investigative prototyping, the project identifies instances where it should never be used, while proposing useful and appropriate applications for emotive AI. This project explores how we analyzed emotive AI and designed the foundation for a tool that uses your facial landmarks as input for browsing similar facial expressions within images and video— designing one appropriate use case for emotive AI.

Team project with classmate and collaborator, Anna Kang.
