Abstract

Enhancing human-machine interaction by adding emotions to the machine‘s way of expression is one of the main topics of current research. This would improve the interaction, on the assumption that the more human-like the machine behavior is, the more comfortable the interaction with it will be. This project aims to create an environment-aware emotional avatar. This avatar will be placed in an experimental framework which is described as follows: Participants will be interacting with each other in a limited room in which the avatar will be present as a spectator. The avatar should be able to recognize when different scenario events occur and react in an affective way. It will react through different affective expressions and utterances.This report summarizes the advances made towards the building of such a system during the eNTERFACE’15 Workshop.
