Keynote Title: Building Emotionally Intelligent AI: From Sensing to Synthesis
Keynote Lecturer: Daniel McDuff
Presented on: 27/02/2019, Prague, Czech Republic
Abstract: Emotions play an important role in our everyday lives. They influence memory, decision-making and well-being. In order to advance the fundamental understanding of human emotions, build smarter affective technology, and ultimately help people, we need to perform research in-situ. Leveraging exciting advances in machine learning and computer vision it is now possible to quantify emotional and physiological responses in new ways and on a large scale using webcams and microphones in everyday environments. I will present novel methods for physiological and behavioral measurement via ubiquitous hardware and show data from the largest longitudinal data collection of its kind. Then I will present state-of-the-art approaches for emotion synthesis (both audio and visual) that can be used to create rich human-agent or robot interactions. Finally, I will show examples of new human-computer interfaces that leverage behavioral and physiological signals, including emotion-aware natural conversational systems.
