We have recently seen facial recognition technology applied to diverse uses. These include controlling smart homes and speeding up airport boarding. Now, a high school in Hangzhou City, China is using facial recognition technology to monitor student attentiveness. Hangzhou Number 11 High School is using cameras placed at the front of the classroom to scan students’ faces. The Hikvision software detects seven different facial expressions, including neutral, happy, sad, disappointed, angry, scared and surprised. After analyzing the expressions, the system can determine whether the student is distracted or is paying attention. A display screen shows teachers the results in real time. School authorities believes that the new “smart eye” will help improve educational standards.
