Always ask what training data the AI learned from. Here,
- 16 men and 8 women (probably young & non-disabled)
- pretending to walk with emotion
- auto-transformed to stick figures
- and then 'true' emotions labeled by remote MTurk workers
- ignoring actor's intended emotion

And what about training data for AIs used to identify potential aggression? Or to analyze videos of job candidates?
Every time I see stuff like this I think of CIMON annoying an astronaut with its emotion detection.  https://qz.com/1482839/the-iss-has-a-robot-on-board-and-hes-being-kind-of-a-dick/ 

I'm so excited to see this application happen though:
