How does the platform decode human emotions?
Entropik Tech with its cutting-edge camera technology tracks and captures facial expressions to associate them with emotions and track eye-gaze movements in real-time. Human beings have 2 lakh expressions, the reactions recorded by the platform are analysed with its deep learning technology that deciphers the meaning of a certain expression.
It also does brainwave mapping where an EEG ( ElectroEncephaloGraphy )headset is used to track the neuro pulse of a user to measure sensory stimulus from the electrical activity taking place in the brain against touch, smell, and taste. The brainwave mapping also gives businesses an overview of looking at behavioural data. Through its facial coding feature it teaches machines to recognise a facial expression to associate with emotion and build a repository of ground truth data of these recorded emotions based on the defined models in behavioural psychology.
Recently, Entropik Tech through its emotion AI capabilities has decoded the emotions that have come across the viewers’ minds while watching the season-5 trailer of Netflix’s most popular web series – Money Heist. In its emotion report emotions of happiness, anger, sadness, and surprise were found to be dominant when Lisbon decided to command the heist for a full-blown attack against Colonel Tamayo’s men at the Bank of Spain.
