Will New App Monetization Opportunities Arise for Developers from Affectiva’s New Affdex SDK

Ever since the introduction of the smartphone/smartdevice, one of the most powerful aspects of this technology has been its capability to recognize and react to the environment surrounding it. The inclusion of GPS, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Magnetometer, Proximity Sensor, Camera and more gee whiz tech makes these ubiquitous devices truly worthy of their Star Trek tech roots.

These device sensors have also opened up a universe of targeted marketing opportunities for advertisers and revenue generators for app developers and publishers. And now Affectiva has just released its Affdex SDK, providing emotion-sensing technology for iOS apps providing developers the opportunity to optimize user engagement by creating apps that instantly respond to a user’s unfiltered emotion feedback.

By employing advanced computer vision and machine learning techniques that recognize and automate the analysis of tacit expressions, Affdex applies scientific methods to interpret viewers' emotional responses. User’s facial expressions are captured (via device camera, video or single image) and emotion insights are generated on-device, in real-time. Keeping the processing on the iOS device, enables Affectiva to uphold the privacy of users by ensuring that facial images are not saved or transmitted.

The SDK gathers a full range of emotions by detecting discrete and dimensional emotional metrics from the face such as smile, surprise, dislike and valence (overall positivity or negativity). The company suggests that this new available real time user emotional analysis will open new doors for developer revenues.
