Congratulations to nViso who won just a few days ago the IBM Beacon Award 2013 for Smarter Computing in the category SmartCloud – Cloud Application Provider.

nViso has developed an emotion recognition software that interprets human facial micro-expressions and eye movements captured through video. Its solutions use proprietary 3D facial imaging technology with artificial intelligence to track hundreds of different facial points to recognize human emotions.

The capabilities of the technology can be seen in the on-line campaign to promote the Cinemax television series “Hunted.”

The promotion, developed by marketing agency Campfire, uses the nViso cloud-based API in one of the five tests to ‘interview’ potential applicants to the private security firm featured in the plot of the series. It interprets and analyzes web site visitors’ emotional responses to various stimuli and produces an instant evaluation of whether they could be qualified for a position with the firm.

And by the way, for those who would have missed it, nViso Announced the launch of its Real-time 3D Facial Imaging API for measuring emotion reactions online last quarter. You can find the press release here.
