The Future of Mind Reading Computer

Many findings in both psychology and affective computing areas have reshaped the scientific understanding of human’s mental states. Mental states have been found to be one of the key factors that contribute to the quality of human-computer interaction (HCI). Currently, a number of experiments in affective computing and HCI areas are being conducted; the studies mainly focus on the development of a novel computer system called the mind reading computer. The mind reading computer, in a very real sense, can read people’s minds and can react to different emotions or commands. Researchers believe that, in the future, mind reading computer can be applied to many disciplines in the real world and can improve the quality of HCI.
This exploratory research provides comprehensive insights into the background, models and implementation of the mind reading computer. To accomplish that, this research will be based on secondary data sources and will mainly focus on its affect on individuals as the main end-users. The computational model, which is one of the frameworks for human’s mental states recognition will be explored along with its methods. This model uses special algorithms to extract data from one’s facial expression and present the results in a mathematical way through the use of classifiers. With respect to that, the applications of this model can be useful to detect stress level in a person as well as to diagnose autism syndrome.
