World Happiness Index

is coming soon... We are still collecting a sufficient amount of emotion indices. Since we are not keeping any images we only save the emotion-results, determined by a machine learning process, as well as the age and sex found in the faces. We also save the IP address in order to enable the geographical allocation.
