What makes Pykognition different to existing facial emotion detection tools?
Pykognition helps researchers use and interpret the emotion classifications from Amazon Web Service (AWS) Rekognition. We do not develop the emotion detection technology ourselves. Rekognition is primarily developed for use in software, which makes the output not very conducive for academic analysis. Our tool, Pykognition, basically simplifies the process of classifying images with Rekognition and delivers the output in a way that is easily interpretable for researchers.
