Automated nonverbal sensing and feedback technologies, such as My Automated Conversation coacH (MACH), can provide a personalized means to better understand, evaluate, and improve human social interaction--for both practical and therapeutic purposes, and to advance future communications research. The first Web extra at discusses My Automated Conversation coacH (MACH), a system for people to practice social interactions in face-to-face scenarios. MACH consists of a 3D character that can see, hear, and make its own decisions in real time. The second Web extra at discusses software developed at MIT that can be used to help people practice their interpersonal skills until they feel more comfortable with situations such as a job interview or a first date. The software, called MACH (short for My Automated Conversation coacH), uses a computer-generated onscreen face, along with facial, speech, and behavior analysis and synthesis software to simulate face-to-face conversations. It then provides users with feedback on their interactions.
