There is an article in IEEE Computer Society with short writeups on the winners of the IEEE/IBM Watson 2015 Student Challenge. Here’s to miface for being the only app that got a graphic included!
The MiFace citizen science concept website, built using IBM’s Bluemix cloud hosting and the Watson Tone Analyzer service, won a top 5 award in the IEEE/IBM Watson cognitive computing challenge for students. Thanks go to the work of Hansi Mou on the database, and Stephanie Michalowicz for collaborating on data analysis.

The work I did as an undergraduate with Dr. Harriet Oster — a former Ph.D. student advised by Paul Ekman — and at VicarVision during the summer of 2013 has evolved into MiFace, a tool for generating recognizable facial expressions using a 3D model. Still in the research stage, my cohort Stephanie Michalowicz and I are hoping to use[…]
Two very talented NYU MBA students, Anmar El-Khalil and Alex Dillon (also studying medicine, whew!) gave me the chance to help out with prototyping a Glass application and bluetooth wristband as part of an integrated patient management system concept.
This presentation reviews the work done for my summer 2013 internship at VicarVision, working with their FaceReader automated expression recognition software. A 3D model generated using faceshift was modified and scripted in Maya to conform to the standard Action Units used in coding facial expressions is driven by the data output by FaceReader.
