However, this time, instead of collecting more training samples, we will select the radio button that says Test. This will trigger an EVT_RADIOBUTTON event, which binds to FaceLayout._on_testing, disabling all training-related buttons in the GUI and switching the app to the testing mode. In this mode, the pre-trained MLP classifier is applied to every frame of the live stream, trying to predict the current facial expression.
