Emotion recognition technology can effectively recognize human emotions and even psychological activities. As a result, robots can acquire human-like observation, understanding, and response capabilities. These capabilities can be utilized in robot-assisted medical rehabilitation, criminal investigation, and identification.

Recognizing and interpreting human facial expressions is a derivative technology that accompanies facial recognition.

Manipulating Machines with Ideas – Brain-computer Interface Technology
