gestural analysis for social feedback
  [vote for,

This would be a tool that combines google's search algorithm, youtube's database, and a statistically based gestural recognition system.

The recognition system would index online video and classify physical behaviors as body language, run statistical analysis of the proximity of different behaviors, and then give you feedback on a realtime analysis of your behavior.

Actually you could facebook-ize this by allowing socially networked friends to mark up video in a trust-based system. So maybe this is something that Google and Facebook could work on together.

So for example: you are on a date but keep <picking your nose>, a behavior which the system recognizes, and through the restaurant security cams it matches this up probabilistically with more <sad facial expressions> and <negative tones of voice> etc, and to avert this, plays back to you <music> or another <bevavior> that it determines statistically had preceded the stopping of other examples of <nose picking> that have then been followed by <smiles> and <coos> in similar situations.

Or, you are a big company who decides to hire people with disabiliites to run your cash registers and the system determines that there are more smiles per capita in the cash register lines...

       So, if Facebook and Google work on it together, might it be Faceboogle? [+]
