Opsis emotion recognition AI help teachers identify students with learning difficulties or mental health issues like anxiety and depression which interfere with learning, self-esteem and socialization.

Online education is evolving in powerful ways as a result of the pandemic. It is also broadening accessibility to a large number of people. But the traditional interaction between a teacher and a student has been lost. It is hard for a teacher to know if the student is confused or anxious as they are not there in person. Emotions are complex and hard enough to read even in person. In digital interactions, it is a monumental task.


Opsis emotion AI technology is a bridge from offline to the digital world. It senses and enables the teacher to read the emotions of students in real-time. Our multimodal emotion recognition AI tracks students’ eye movements, facial expressions, vocal tones and vocal patterns to measure the intensity of concentration. This sheds light on the student’s response to the teaching content and measures reactions such as hesitation, focus and stress. It also helps teachers detect students with learning difficulties.


The Covid-19 pandemic over the past few years has created a mental health crisis among children and teenagers (Harvard Medical School, March 8, 2022). One of the consequences of lockdowns, cutting off social interactions, children being out of school is alarming amounts of anxiety and depression in children and teenagers. Mental health affects physical health. Untreated mental health problems interfere with learning, self-esteem, socialization which can have long term repercussions. In some cases, they lead to suicide.
