Microsoft is working on technology that measures the mood of the people through the smartphone
The Microsoft Research is developing a new technology dedicated to smartphones that can determine the mood of users and share via social networks. The project name is MoodScope and its function is to identify whether the person feels tense, happy, angry, bored, calm, stressed or excited.
Through an integrated study of 32 people, and used Microsoft Research identified usage patterns that might reflect the mood or mood of a person, such as communication history (number of calls. Messages and emails) and frequency the use of certain applications categorized. The first result, as indicated in the document, hit its forecast by 66%, a number that gradually grew to become a 93% after two months of testing.
Of course, the Redmond are aware that not all the state of mind of a person can be “caught” or “measured” according to their habits with a smartphone, but that does not stop MoodScope conceive to be a useful tool for interact with others.
“Users will be able to know more precisely when and in what tone to address a person. For example, parents with a child in a bad mood can call to try to cheer him up. Or when you send a text message to his boss who is angry can be careful about how they use their words. A mood sensor can allow users to communicate more closely in the same way they do in real life. “
The text also suggests that this type of technology can be used by companies service providers to meet customer needs according to your mood. For example, video streaming services and music as Netflix and Spotify, respectively, can make content suggestions based on what the user sits.
