The “Misü” platform is a mood monitoring solution for those looking for a simple and intuitive way to keep track of their emotions and daily mood.
Misü works by using artificial intelligence (AI) to take photos during the day and take facial expressions into account. The goal is to automatically detect a person's mood in addition to their voluntary recordings of moods. The system takes everything into account, including microexpressions (even squinting eyes) to rate happiness and anxiety on a scale of zero to 100 and allow users to better understand how they might feel on a daily basis.

A diary made of looks
Like a "dog" who looks at his master to understand what the air is like, but he does it dozens of times a day. And with an artificial intelligence algorithm that makes him learn more and more, and faster and faster. To the point where we are told that no, our optimistic statements about the future do not deceive: we are worried. To the point of telling us when we are lying to ourselves. A form of intelligent self-help that cannot, and will never be able to replace talking with friends, or even better the activity of a professional psychologist. But Misü is a tool that can help us understand a bit more of our propensities, and our way of reacting to things in life.
What about privacy?
The problem is clear: providing a company with even tracking of our emotions can make us increasingly vulnerable. For example, this data could be used “against us” by offering us purchases in moments of greater vulnerability. From the top of the company that created Misü they are therefore quick to say that they are focused on a person's mood, not on the use of data. "We take privacy very seriously by doing all the calculations on the user's computer and never uploading content to a remote server", can be read on the official website of the app.
On the other hand we already monitor how many steps we take, how much we sleep, and also what we eat.
