So Shortly before my proposal was submitted after consulting with my supervisor it was decided that a slight shift in focus would be necessary. Instead of pursuing an system for affect detection in audiences, a framework to solve some of the challenges in such a system has become the goal. the main reason for this is because affect detection is a field that is changing quite often and a problem that is very challenging to solve. Therefore there would be some value is developing a facial extraction framework with an inversion of control that would call a supplied method to classify or quantify the emotion in each face. This is the new direction for the thesis, and the core of the proposal.
