New technology may read your face better than any human can

A new algorithm has been developed in order to read human facial expressions better than anything else could possibly do. This technology has been designed to read 'micro expressions', a term described as small facial cues and expressions which can give away internal thoughts or feelings.




This artificial intelligence can recognize and analyze these facial movements, something which the MIT Technology Review points out as often occurring "when individuals hide their feelings under conditions of relatively high stakes."


Recording a video at 100 frames per second, this machine was utilized by the researchers to study 20 subjects while they were watching an emotional video, this new discovery was able to pinpoint and analyze every time something was trying to break out from within.


While this is a scientifically correct algorithm, it is yet to be tested in real life.
