Lost the remote? Use your face… frowning skips commercials I guess…

A researcher has discovered a way to use facial expressions to speed and slow video playback.

By using a combination of facial expression recognition software and automated tutoring technology Jacob Whitehill, a computer science Ph.D. student from UC San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering, is leading the project that ultimately is part of a larger venture to use automated facial expression recognition to make robots more effective teachers.

    This is horrible. I mean, if this were just for research, cool, but if this were to be implemented in classrooms, a student would have to appear outwardly happy and interested at all times. “Timmy, you are 65% uninterested, please become interested or I will kick out of the class.”
