Why our Facial Emotion Detection API ?


Highly accurate classification of unstructured visual data.

Real Time

State of the art technology to provide accurate results real-time.


Can be trained on custom dataset to obtain similar accuracy and performance.

How it works

A Fully Convolutional Neural Network based classifier is used to predict the facial emotions of the the person in the image. An FCN (Fully Convolutional Network) is a network composed of only convolutional layers, batch norms and non-linearities, ie., it has no fully Connected (or Dense) layers. The figure below shows how a convolutional layer applies. Whether a face exists in the image or not is determined by a Viola Jones Detector.

use cases

Automative Industry

Using emotion detection, smart cars can alert the driver when he is feeling drowsy and play music based on his emotions.


As an HR tool, it can help not only in devising recruiting strategies but also in designing HR policies that bring about best performance from employees.

Video Game Designers

Using emotion detection AI can aid in understanding which emotions a user is going through in real-time as he is playing, without analyzing the complete video manually.
