How does it work?
Emolyzr is an agency specialized on emotion measures. It assessed stress-related emotions of the politicians by analyzing their faces during the TV debate with a software developed by the German research organization Fraunhofer. This software can not only identify the age and sex of a person, but profile a range of emotions and record subtle facial changes to assist that. It processes HD video in real-time and then analyses facial cues.
Especially of interest were the amount of time that the software could detect stress-related emotions (anger & sadness) and the stress-protective emotion happiness. From these observations, the scientists of Emolyzr developed a stress-score. This score is valid only for the specific situation of the current TV debate and cannot be translated into other life areas, as we do not have any data on these available.
