What's new in FaceReader 9
FaceReader is the most flexible tool for emotion analysis – not only can you create your own dashboard, it is also possible to define your own custom expressions!
The upcoming release will bring you more analysis options and power, speeding up your research in addition to the unique features and benefits offered by FaceReader:
Improved Face Modeling
FaceReader 9 contains new and improved face finding and face modeling techniques, based on Deep Learning technology. It’s more accurate and much faster! FaceReader 9 can now model faces even in difficult pose or lighting, and can also be used with Baby FaceReader.
With the improved Project Analysis Module you can easily create charts and tables and compare responses to stimuli. The project analysis now also includes Action Units, heart rate and custom expressions.
You can design your own dashboard with tables or graphs of your choice, and easily compare responses between groups of participants. Groups can be created manually or automatically using independent variables.
FaceReader 9 offers an increased number of outputs, varying from gaze direction, head position, and heart rate variability (HRV is available as part of the RPPG module).
Since the introduction of Custom Expressions as a part of the Action Unit Module, we have been working on adding new algorithms. FaceReader 9 offers more custom expressions, including Attention, Blink (AU45), Smiling, Laughing and Leaning Backward/Forward. You can design your own custom expressions, or adapt our examples to fit your research need.
