MorphCast Emotion AI Video Conference – FAQ

Last update February 22, 2024

What is MorphCast Emotion AI Video Conference?

MorphCast Emotion AI Video Conference is a service that provides real-time analysis of participants’ emotional state, attention level, and engagement during video conferences or webinars in the browser. It aims to help improve communication and interactions during these virtual events by analyzing the data through both real time and deferred dashboard.
The service is based on MorphCast Emotion AI technology, which is software for image processing that can determine the emotional state and other apparent characteristics of an individual in front of the camera.
During the video conference or webinar, the organizer can start and stop the analysis, and participants can choose to accept or reject the analysis. If the analysis is enabled on both side, the organizer can access a real-time dashboard with a table that displays the participants’ name, dominant emotion, number of faces in front of the screen, attention level, and engagement. The dashboard also shows the average attention and arousal levels of the participants, dominant emotions, and attention level per minute.
After the event, the organizer can access a report that includes a table with the data of each participant who authorized the analysis, such as name, dominant emotion, and average attention and arousal levels. The report also includes the top 5 emotions expressed by participants during the entire event, a 2D emotional space, and the dominant emotions of the participants in percentage. The organizer can select individuals or groups of participants and view their respective data.
MorphCast Emotion AI Video Conference is available through the MorphCast Site and is a paid service that any professional user can use.

Why have you developed another video conference tool, given the many available in the market?

Our technology in the field of artificial intelligence, especially emotion AI, is highly debated, and there are no clear laws yet on what can and cannot be done. Due to these uncertainties, our service has faced intermittent suspensions by Zoom and other platforms, followed by reinstatements after thorough technical and privacy checks. To address these gaps in product availability, we decided to offer our clients an alternative video conference tool, entirely under our control, to ensure consistent service. Following the warm reception of our product on the market, we have become convinced that offering a specialized alternative that is always updated with the latest emotion AI technologies would be useful to our customers.
