“The market for emotional recognition technologies is growing very rapidly. We understand, that in the course of the development of this market, numerous ethical standards are violated. Technical systems for detecting and recognizing emotions, not only initially distort data on a person’s state, but also become control tools. “Our goal is to create research tools that will objectively identify and analyse mass emotions in order to achieve political tolerance, social stability and enlightenment.”
