Affectiva SDK Adds Emotion Detection to Mobile Apps

  • By Developer.com Staff

A startup called Affectiva has launched a software development kit (SDK) that claims to be able to track the emotions of mobile device users. The SDK can access a device's camera, video footage or photos to determine the user's emotional state. ZMZobile development firms and advertisers can then use this information to monitor how apps and ads are affecting users.
