When Humans Become Objects: Out-Group Effects in Real and Artificial Faces
Found in: 2013 Humaine Association Conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII)
By Aleksandra Swiderska,Eva G. Krumhuber,Arvid Kappas
Issue Date:September 2013
pp. 612-617
Out-group members are commonly viewed as being less human than in-group members. They are denied certain human characteristics and in turn become associated with machines or automata. Specifically, out-groups are attributed less naturally and uniquely huma...
 
Predicting Emotional Responses to Long Informal Text
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing
By Georgios Paltoglou,Mathias Theunis,Arvid Kappas,Mike Thelwall
Issue Date:January 2013
pp. 106-115
Most sentiment analysis approaches deal with binary or ordinal prediction of affective states (e.g., positive versus negative) on review-related content from the perspective of the author. The present work focuses on predicting the emotional responses of o...
 
Smile When You Read This, Whether You Like It or Not: Conceptual Challenges to Affect Detection
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing
By Arvid Kappas
Issue Date:January 2010
pp. 38-41
The survey by Calvo and D'Mello presents a useful overview of the progress of and issues in affect detection. They focus on emotion theories that are relevant to Affective Computing (AC) and suggest stronger collaborations between disciplines. My contribut...
 
Affect and Social Processes in Online Communication--Experiments with an Affective Dialog System
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing
By Marcin Skowron,Mathias Theunis,Stefan Rank,Arvid Kappas
Issue Date:July 2013
pp. 267-279
This paper presents an integrated view on a series of experiments conducted with an affective dialog system, applied as a tool in studies of emotions and social processes in online communication. The different realizations of the system are evaluated in th...
 
Mixing implicit and explicit probes: finding a ground truth for engagement in social human-robot interactions
Found in: Proceedings of the 2014 ACM/IEEE international conference on Human-robot interaction (HRI '14)
By Arvid Kappas, Christina Basedow, Christopher Peters, Dennis Küster, Ginevra Castellano, Lee J. Corrigan
Issue Date:March 2014
pp. 140-141
In our work we explore the development of a computational model capable of automatically detecting engagement in social human-robot interactions from real-time sensory and contextual input. However, to train the model we need to establish ground truths of ...
     
Vocal and facial trustworthiness of talking heads
Found in: Proceedings of the 3rd Symposium on Facial Analysis and Animation (FAA '12)
By Andrew J. Aubrey, Antony S. R. Manstead, Arvid Kappas, David Marshall, Elena Tsankova, Eva G. Krumhuber, Guido Möllering, Paul L. Rosin
Issue Date:September 2012
pp. 1-1
Trust is a key aspect to human communication due to its link to co-operation and survival. Recent research by [Ballew and Todorov 2007] has shown that humans can generate an initial trustworthiness judgement based on facial features within 100ms. However, ...
     
Perception of animacy in Caucasian and Indian faces
Found in: Proceedings of the 3rd Symposium on Facial Analysis and Animation (FAA '12)
By Aleksandra Swiderska, Arvid Kappas, Eva Krumhuber
Issue Date:September 2012
pp. 1-1
Masahiro Mori, who introduced the concept of the Uncanny Valley, recommended settling for moderate levels of human likeness in robotic design in order to avoid the eeriness upon encountering entities closely resembling humans [Mori 1970]. However, the stri...
     
Effects of humanness of virtual agents on impression formation
Found in: Proceedings of the 3rd Symposium on Facial Analysis and Animation (FAA '12)
By Arvid Kappas, Eva Krumhuber, John Hodgson, Mark Hall
Issue Date:September 2012
pp. 1-1
In recent years, the use of virtual agents that act as an interface between human and computer has become increasingly popular. Such agents typically appear as embodied characters and display various types of life-like behaviour. To ensure the acceptance w...
