"In this paper, the authors describe the concept based on using standard input devices, such as keyboard and mouse, as sources of data recognition of user's emotional states. Emotions are generally considered as products of evolution. Conventional emotional identification methods (facial expressional analysis, voice intonation analysis, thermal imaging of the face) use intrusive, lab-based, and expensive tools which are unsuitable for real-world situations. The idea behind keystroke dynamics is that people have different typing styles and by analyzing the timings of keystrokes, a person's mental state can be identified."
