Computer Vision detects heart rate

Researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) are now using computer vision to determine heart rate. Using an algorithm that analyzes small movements in the head, researchers are able to connect those movements to the rush of blood caused by the beating heart, in turn determining the heart rate. This opens doors for testing those who, for one reason or another, maybe not be the best candidates for EKG testing.
