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?)

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.

when you’re looking at the face of the person you’re talking to, you’re not looking at the camera, so the other person doesn’t think you’re looking at them because they see what the camera sees, even though you actually are looking at them...

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

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.

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

Why don’t they move the camera then?

To the centre of the screen? 🤔 It's something that may make distance communication better, and it's optional.

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

I have to say my eyes aren’t in the middle of my face but I’d hate to generalise. And sure, doing something clever with the camera might be more difficult, but it would create fewer trust and cognitive issues, and be less creepy, less ableist, less open to manipulative uses.

Nnnng. Like, why can’t everyone just prioritise getting printers and projectors and conference calls to work and stop mucking about with stuff?

What about people with lazy eyes that look in different directions? Then what next? Very very strange and dodgy path this starts walking.

Agree, once it becomes more than just a virtual camera position it’s a dodgy path.

I'd buy it if it could make me look like I actually gave a fuck about whatever wear being discussed in the meeting.
