    The affective communication channel plays a key role in multimodal human-computer interaction. In this context, the generation of realistic talking-heads expressing emotions both in appearance and speech is of great interest. The synthetic speech of talking-heads is generally obtained from a text-to-speech (TTS) synthesizer. One of the dominant techniques for achieving high-quality synthetic speec... View full abstract»

    The definition of parameters is a crucial step in the development of a system for identifying emotions in speech. Although there is no agreement on which are the best features for this task, it is generally accepted that prosody carries most of the emotional information. Most works in the field use some kind of prosodic features, often in combination with spectral and voice quality parametrization... View full abstract»

    Automated analysis of human affective behavior has attracted increasing attention in recent years. With the research shift toward spontaneous behavior, many challenges have come to surface ranging from database collection strategies to the use of new feature sets (e.g., lexical cues apart from prosodic features). Use of contextual information, however, is rarely addressed in the field of affect ex... View full abstract»

    In modern times, music video (MV) has become an important favorite pastime to people because of its conciseness, convenience, and the ability to bring both audio and visual experiences to audiences. As the amount of MVs is explosively increasing, it has become an important task to develop new techniques for effective MV analysis, retrieval, and management. By stimulating the human affective respon... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a novel method for movie affective scene classification that outputs the emotion (in the form of labels) that the scene is likely to arouse in viewers. Since the affective preferences of users play an important role in movie selection, affective scene classification has the potential to develop more attractive user-centric movie search and browsing applications. Two main issues... View full abstract»

    Simple cartoon facial expressions can be represented by emoticons, that is, a special sequence of symbols. This inspires us that a sketch of facial feature contour may be adequate to recognize expressions. Metrics of such sketches are easier to be calibrated under varying illumination and head pose. While skin wrinkles such as nasolabial folds, eye pouches, dimples, forehead, and chin furrows are ... View full abstract»

    Emotions are a key semantic component of human communication. This study focuses on automatic emotion detection in descriptive sentences and how this can be used to tune facial expression parameters for 3-D character generation. A comparison of manual and automatic word feature selection approaches is performed to determine the influence of word features on classification accuracy using support ve... View full abstract»

    During face-to-face conversation, our body is continually in motion, displaying various head, gesture, and posture movements. Based on findings describing the communicative functions served by these nonverbal behaviors, many virtual agent systems have modeled them to make the virtual agent look more effective and believable. One channel of nonverbal behaviors that has received less attention is he... View full abstract»

    Cohesiveness in teams is an essential part of ensuring the smooth running of task-oriented groups. Research in social psychology and management has shown that good cohesion in groups can be correlated with team effectiveness or productivity, so automatically estimating group cohesion for team training can be a useful tool. This paper addresses the problem of analyzing group behavior within the con... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a multimodal system for real-time analysis of nonverbal affective social interaction in small groups of users. The focus is on two major aspects of affective social interaction: the synchronization of the affective behavior within a small group and the emergence of functional roles, such as leadership. A small group of users is modeled as a complex system consisting of single i... View full abstract»

    Communication between humans deeply relies on the capability of expressing and recognizing feelings. For this reason, research on human-machine interaction needs to focus on the recognition and simulation of emotional states, prerequisite of which is the collection of affective corpora. Currently available datasets still represent a bottleneck for the difficulties arising during the acquisition an... View full abstract»
