How can we better understand and manage our emotions?
Our emotions enrich our relationships and experiences, and are what make us human. Sometimes, though, these feelings can be complicated and challenging to regulate.
To better understand and manage emotions, a team of M.S. Software Management students designed the app Emotion+. The app uses Raspberry Pi to photograph the user’s face while Microsoft Emotions API analyzes facial expressions to detect an emotion. Once detected, the emotion is cataloged in the user’s history, so they can keep track of how they are feeling from day to day.
