5. Sentiment Meter
Last but certainly not least (quite the contrary)! If you came here directly from no. 1, we assure you that you will not be disappointed. If you got to this point by the natural flow of the article, welcome.
Sentiment Meter will be the main focus on our stand and it is one of the simple examples of how Artificial Intelligence can be implemented in many different solutions.
Sentiment Meter is a game in which an emotion is taken at random and the participants only have to make that same emotion, using facial expressions. According to their effort, each player gets a score and the player wins the correspondent prize.
We do not know how you feel about acting, but the only assurance we can give you is that you will always win!
