    Huawei has created an app that allows visually impaired people to transform facial expressions in different sounds, thus facilitating interpersonal relationships. It is Facing Emotion, an application based on Artificial Intelligence able to convert seven emotions of seven different sounds.

    once this is done, it is time for the Artificial Intelligence that applies machine learning for people with partial disability or total are able to identify the expression of the face of the person they are talking to.

    To do this,

    an algorithm is in charge of interpreting the emotions (that already has previously learned to identify after seeing a variety of images with faces of different expressions), and transform them into sounds that the app plays on the speaker of the mobile phone in real-time and offline.

    Huawei developed the app in collaboration with the organization Polish Blind Association, dedicated to investigating the needs of blind people. is The sound clips are the work of the composer Tomasz Bilecki and, according to Huawei, are “short, concise, simple and non-invasive to the user and his environment.”
