Teary eyes detector – part three: wink wink

Our cry detection glasses have passed a first real life test in the lab! To the left you see Asmir Gračanin wearing our still very prototype-y looking glasses at his Tilburg University lab.

Click below to see the result of Asmir winking – closed eyes are substantially cooler (blue) than open eyes (red), just as we’d surmised!


It is great to see our ad hoc cry detection team, consisting Asmir Gračanin, Ad Vingerhoets and Serge de Beer, make steady progress. And our team is growing! This week we have been joined by artificial intelligence researcher Eric Postma. Detecting a wink has proven easy – yet his expertise in social signal processing may prove vital in detecting the much more subtle signal of eyes slowly watering up.
