Paul Ekman

Paul Ekman received his Ph.D. in clinical psychology at Adelphi University (1958) after a one-year internship at the Langley Porter Neuropsychiatric Institute, University of California San Francisco (UCSF). He served two years as First Lieutenant and chief psychologist at Fort Dix, New Jersey, then returned to Langley Porter (UCSF) where he became professor of psychology in the UCSF medical school in 1972, retiring in 2004. Ekman’s research started in the late 1950’s, focusing on hand movements and gesture. It wasn’t until 1965 that he became interested in facial expression and emotion after receiving a grant from the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) of the Department of Defense to examine cross-cultural studies of nonverbal behavior. In 1967 and 1968, Ekman traveled to Papua New Guinea (photograph at right) to further study nonverbal behavior of the Fore people, an isolated, Stone Age culture located in the South East Highlands. His research provided the strongest evidence to date that Darwin, not Margaret Mead, was correct in claiming facial expressions are universal. Ekman then developed, with W. Friesen, the first and only comprehensive tool for objectively measuring facial movement the Facial Action Coding System (FACS), published in 1978, and revised in 2003 with J. Hager as third author. FACS remains the gold standard for identifying any movement the face can make, free of interpretive inferences. Ekman then teamed with Terry Sejnowski to show that neural networks could be used to have computer based facial measurements. That work still continues under the company Emotient for which Dr. Ekman serves as an Advisory Board member. Emotient is the leading authority in facial expression analysis. Their software translates facial expressions into actionable information, thereby enabling companies to develop emotion-aware technologies and to create new levels of customer engagement, research, and analysis.
