KLAVA Innovation uses facial recognition technology to track emotional charge
KLAVA Innovation is conducting research with INRIA in Sophia-Antipolis (the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control) on the development of a facial recognition system for early detection of relapses.
About KLAVA Innovation
In mental health, facial expressions can provide healthcare professionals with clinical information about the emotional state of their patients. The alteration or modification of these expressions could be powerful digital markers for the detection and monitoring of these disorders.
In addictology, our capacity for innovation is based on facial recognition in the monitoring of emotions to detect relapses at an early stage.
