Amazon claims its Rekognition software can now detect fear

It seems that just like bees, Amazon can sense your fear.

Because nothing says “nightmare scenario” quite like a giant
tech corporation everyone uses knowing what you’re feeling, Amazon
announced on Monday that Rekognition,
its
controversial facial recognition tool
, can now detect a
person’s fear. 

The update includes “improved accuracy for emotion detection
(for all 7 emotions: ‘Happy’, ‘Sad’, ‘Angry’,
‘Surprised’, ‘Disgusted’, ‘Calm’ and ‘Confused’)”
but, just for kicks, I guess, “added a new emotion:
‘Fear’.”
