People increasingly rely on emoji to express the tone of digital communications. But as the set of emoji icons grows, it is frustrating and time-consuming to select the right one. The OpenFace library (originally developed in Cambridge) is an open source facial behaviour analysis toolkit, that can monitor a webcam to detect emotional state via action units, such as smiling or raised eyebrows. Your task is to build a custom keyboard app that can insert appropriate emojis directly into the text, based on “commands" directly received from the user’s face.
