Like by Smiling? Facebook Acquires Emotion Detection Startup Faciometrics
Facebook could one day build facial gesture controls for its app thanks to the acquisition of a Carnegie Mellon University spinoff company called FacioMetrics. The startup made an app called IntraFace that could detect seven different emotions in people's faces, but it's been removed from the app stores. The acquisition aligns with a surprising nugget of information Facebook slipped into a 32-bullet point briefing sent to TechCrunch this month.
