New Canon Camera Detects Smiles

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 6:16 am

Canon’s automatic smile detection system prototype turned heads at the recent Japanese giant’s Canon Expo 2005 in New York, an event also held in Paris and Tokyo every five years.

The camera’s artificial intelligence tracks all moving faces within sight and snaps the picture when smiles and bright eyes peak — a challenge for even professional photographers. It will be a while before this camera hits the streets.
