soHappy ist im Rahmen eines Universitätprojektes der Hochschule Augsburg im Sommer 2020 entstanden. Mithilfe von verschiedenen, auf machine learning basierenden Ansätzen ist eine Android-App entstanden, welche es ermöglicht zu erkennen, ob und wie lange eine Person lächelt.

This Android app is based on the Remember to smile - design of a mobile affective technology to help promote individual happiness through smiling paper by George Moore, Leo Galway and Mark Donnelly, which theorizes that more frequent genuine smiling can substantially improve happiness. With technology improving over the years, it has been made possible to measure an individual’s happiness through Affective Computing, which allows a more objective evaluation than more traditional methods, such as questionnaires.
