Mind Reading: the Case of Hidden Emotions


Avid TV viewers may recall the American drama series Lie to Me whose main character was an expert in mind reading based on facial expressions, body language and tone of voice. Recent research within our DiSec Research Institute focuses on precisely this challenging problem of detecting hidden emotions by recognizing very subtle facial expressions invisible to the naked eye. Funded by three industry projects from TM totalling over RM2million, the research has led to breakthroughs in the extraction of invisible motions pioneered by the MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL).
