A smile is a multi-purpose expression. We smile to express rapport, polite disagreement, delight, sarcasm, and often, even frustration. Is it possible to develop computational models to distinguish among smiling instances when delighted, frustrated, or just being polite? In our ongoing work, we demonstrate that it is useful to explore how the patterns of smile evolve through time, and that while a smile may occur in positive and in negative situations, its dynamics may help to disambiguate the underlying state.
