This Weblog is created to keep track of the progress of our project for the class 'Information, Cognition and Perception' at the UvA Science Park. During the course we were asked to write a proposal for a possible future innovation in the area of perception and cognition in combination with new and emerging technologies. We are now working on a way to incorporate the use of facial recognition to develop a network that isn't, how Manuel Castells would call it, 'me-centered'. The network should not be based on previous personal search queries but purely based on emotions. This is to also discover the long-tail of the information on the world wide web as well as people with whom you would never be in contact with in the current situation of networking.
