"MIT Mood Meter is designed to assess and display smiles related to the
overall mood of the MIT community by putting cameras at four different
locations. By gathering and aggregating facial affective information
(i.e., smiles) from people around campus, the Mood Meter can estimate
and reflect the overall mood of MIT during the Festival of Art, Science
and Technology.

[...]

The data recorded during the exhibition contains heuristics about the
number of smiles, their time stamps (date and clock time) and location
of occurrence. The video feed displayed at each location is never
recorded or transmitted over the Internet. Thus, there is no information
that would uniquely identify, track or monitor people while they
participate in this exhibit. "
