In general terms, surveillance and monitoring technologies aim at understanding what people do in a given environment, whether this means to ensure the safety of workers on the factory floor, to detect crimes occurring in indoor or outdoor settings, or to monitor the flow of large crowds through public spaces. However, surveillance and monitoring technologies rarely consider that they analyze human behavior, a phenomenon subject to principles and laws rigorous enough to produce stable and predictable patterns corresponding to social, affective, and psychological phenomena. On the other hand, these phenomena are the subject of other computing domains, in particular Social Signal Processing and Affective Computing, that typically neglect scenarios relevant to surveillance and monitoring technologies, especially when it comes to social and affective dimensions of space in human activities. The goal of this paper is to show that the investigation of the overlapping area between surveillance and monitoring on one side, and Social Signal Processing and Affective Computing on the other side can bring significant progress in both domains and open a number of interesting research perspectives.
