Topic: Cognitive Load Estimation
Cognitive load has been shown, over hundreds of studies, to be an important variable for understanding human performance. However, establishing practical, non-contact, automated methods for estimating cognitive loads under real-world conditions is an un-solved problem. In this paper, Fridman et. al. proposes two novel vison-based methods for cognitive-load estimation. These methods address a important and challenging problem that has huge implications and can be used to ensure safety in tasks ranging from driving cars to operating machinery.
