Microexpression Correlator

facial emotion gestural history mapping
  [vote for,

This is a system that correlates microexpressions across videos of interviews. It would correlate individual frames of microexpressions on the faces of interview participants across time. The best way to start would probably be with a group of well known people who all know eachother well and of whom there are many close up videos of interviews, and then correlate the microexpressions statistically to see if there is, and then map the history of exchange over time.

The theory would be that people copy emotions from eachother. In my own personal experience of watching myself on video I have noticed that many individual frames look unlike me and very much like people I have known in my past who have had emotional influences on me. If you could correlate this statistically you could get a better picture of how "thoughts" really happen, that they are not original in the way we are conscious of now but are instead traded around in a relatively unconscious economy.

       I'd probably start with words rather than microexpressions. Words often correlate more or less with what people are thinking.
