'Globe Trot' Short Film from Department of Dance
Filmmaker Mitchell Rose and choreographer Bebe Miller, both from the Department of Dance, have created an international crowd-sourced film, Globe Trot. Fifty filmmakers on all seven continents (including an Ohio State research station in Antarctica) each shot two seconds of Miller’s choreography and sent the footage back to Rose for editing. The film has won five festival awards since premiering at the prestigious Cinedans in Amsterdam in March.
Computer Mapping of 21 Distinct Facial Expressions
Ohio State researchers have found a way for computers to recognize 21 distinct facial expressions, even those reflecting such complex or seemingly contradictory emotions as "happily disgusted" or "sadly angry." Mapping emotions in the brain with greater precision may aid in diagnosing and treating mental conditions. This model may help with designing robots one day that interpret our emotions, including companion robots for the elderly.
