A New and Innovative Solution for Human Behaviour Analysis
January 22, 2021 News


Herta is thrilled to announce the launch of our new video analysis solution, BioObserver. This sophisticated software will mark a significant change in the study of human behaviour and facial expression analysis.

Based on advanced artificial intelligence techniques, BioObserver automatically detects and annotates a person’s facial expressions and micro-expressions and the direction of the gaze and head orientation to monitor behavioural metrics such as affective states or the individual’s level of attention. The platform also allows configuring automatic rules and annotations of events to extract keyframes of the video that are considered of interest. With BioObserver you can detect subtle micro-expressions such as “frowning,” “blinking,” or “raising eyebrows,” according to the Facial Action Coding System by Paul Ekman. The tool offers the possibility to work at a very low level. Then, the combination of some micro-expressions may form a higher-level prototypic facial emotion (such as joy, anger, sadness, fear, surprise…) which can be configured in the software as well.

This new solution has been co-created with key end-customers from the law enforcement sector, resulting in a user-friendly, intuitive and time-saving tool that any interviewer would love. The solution is being offered on a SaaS model and will allow the customer to process hours of video, extremely fast and at a very affordable cost.
