An article in The New York Times about using computers to read pain expressed on people’s faces reports that, in a new study by researchers at UB, humans and a computer were shown videos of people in real pain or pretending to be, with observers guessing correctly who was in pain and who was pretending to be about half the time, but with computers achieving an 85 percent accuracy rate. Articles on the research also appeared in news outlets throughout Australia, including Melbourne Age and the Sydney Morning Herald, and on Pain Medicine News.
