This feels like a nope. Why should my *phone* decide where I should be looking? Auto-correct for facial expressions is a whole new weird world of darkness. (And maybe where the animoji training data has been going?)

Oh ... I mean, is this actually deep fake as a product?

Quite a few people (men FWIW) have replied to this to say it doesn’t seem creepy to them, but the first rule of “is this creepy?” is not “Do this seem creepy to ME?” but “Does this seem creepy to someone with less power or status or more vulnerability than me?”

I get that, but there’s been loads of hci research on improving engagement through eye gaze. Think of it a Apple virtually repositioning their camera to begin the screen & it’s not so bad. That said, fake smiles / enhanced emotional response are all things I can see being built.

Why don’t they move the camera then?

it looks like it might be configurable, so might it be on or off by default? - I could do with the feature in real life to correct my squint, would help in many a confused social situation!

But who gets to turn it off; the squinter or the squintee, iyswim? I have some immediate weird feelings about it being used in manipulative situations.

I'd actually be cool with something that would do this to my face in meetings

“Who gets to decide what normal looks like?” is usu the beginning of a lot of bad stuff happening.

I'm quite sure Marty Feldman (were he still with us) and others afflicted by TED would have something to say about this...

If you're actually looking at somebody's eyes, you should look like you're looking at their eyes. Doesn't seem creepy to me, as long as it's done well.
