Google Glass might not be welcome everywhere, but I am quite sure that this is not going to slow down the adoption rate of Google Glass anytime soon when it finally becomes easily available over to the masses. In fact, Emotient, a facial expression recognition company has recently announced their very own Sentiment Analysis prototype application for Google Glass, which is being released as a private beta right now to be tested out among select partners and customers. Emotient claims that this particular app is able to detect one’s emotions, which could be employed by retailers want to improve the understanding of customer sentiment, in addition to customer satisfaction. I suppose this is the high tech way of replacing common sense.
Remember the mysterious Google Barge? At the end of last month, we reported that it was well on its way to Stockton, and fast forward to today, the Google Barge has finally arrived in Stockton. This just goes to show yet again that patience is a virtue, and good things come to those who wait. The Google Barge has made its way to its new home in Stockton after managing to come to an agreement with the city’s port to lease a spot. The entire journey took 80 miles to complete, with it having left Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay.
