A new aid for the visually impaired
Prof. Dr. Nicolas Müller
Wie Menschen mit einer Seh-Einschränkung trotzdem Gesichtsemotionen während eines Gesprächs erkennen können, erklärt Prof. Nicholas Müller (Sozioinformatik) im #FHWSPodcast.
In our #FHWSPodcast, Prof. Nicholas Müller (socio-informatics) explains how persons with a visual impairment can nevertheless perceive facial expressions during a conversation.
For healthy people, it is perfectly normal to pay attention to the facial expres-sions of listeners while talking. If someone knits their brows, it is immediately clear they did not understand what was said. But what do people with visual im-pairments do? They are lacking this information, which can often lead to misun-derstandings. This is precisely where Prof. Nicholas Müller, professor for socio-informatics, wants to help with the “vibrotactile emotion recognition” project. Artificial intelligence plays a major role in this project.
You can learn exactly what “vibrotactile emotion recognition” means and how it is all implemented in practice in our #FHWSPodcast.
