The new iPhone X can become a tool used to protect against allegations of sexual harassment. With a face scan, developers are able to customize smartphones for reliable authentication and capture of emotions and mood. With further development, observed facial points can provide the basis for understanding underlying intention.
Igor Esipovich, Head of Artezio Mobile Development Department, “The new iPhone’s hardware allows identifying the basic facial points. Specially trained neural networks can be applied to build a matrix of emotions. We are exploring the possibility of applying face recognition for the development of specialized apps as well as for capturing a person’s emotional state.”
He also notes that an emotional mark created in the app can be combined with visual or geolocation data.
According to Igor Esipovich, “If the technological complex works as we assume, then it will be possible to determine precisely an individual’s emotional state in a particular place and time. And it can definitely be used not only for entertainment but also more serious areas.”
Artezio’s top manager pointed out to some difficulties in the development that can arise, such as “the possibility to simulate emotions and the need to take into account various facial defects.”
He adds that developers are already creating the first mobile apps capable to recognize emotions based on the analysis of visual data by neural networks, although it is not a primary task.
“Another major objective is to provide a long-term data storage for 50-100 years. Moreover, it should be safe custody that guarantees data privacy and integrity,” admits Esipovich.
Artezio conducts research work on applying new features and capabilities of mobile devices. The company focuses not only on the available functionality but also assumes further development of mobile operational systems, the use of the AI potential and means of user identification.
Currently, Artezio’s mobile apps fully support iPhone X and FaceID.
