• Measuring the Impact of Multimodal Behavioural Feedback Loops on Social Interactions
    Ionut Damian, Tobias Baur, Elisabeth André
    Proceedings ICMI
    In this paper we explore the concept of automatic behavioural feedback loops during social interactions. Behavioural feedback loops (BFL) are rapid processes which analyse the behaviour of the user in realtime and provide the user with live feedback on how to improve the behaviour quality...

    Proceedings ICMI
    Over the last years, mobile devices have become an integral part of people's everyday life. At the same time, they provide more and more computational power and memory capacity to perform complex calculations that formerly could only be accomplished with bulky desktop machines...

  • A Job Interview Simulation: Social Cue-based Interaction with a Virtual Character

    Fundstelle: 220-227
    This paper presents an approach that makes use of a virtual character and social signal processing techniques to create an immersive job interview simulation environment. In this environment, the virtual character plays the role of a recruiter which reacts and adapts to the user’s behavior thanks to a component for the automatic recognition of social cues (conscious or unconscious behavioral patterns). The social cues pertinent to job interviews have been identified using a knowledge elicitation study with real job seekers. Finally, we present two user studies to investigate the feasibility of the proposed approach as well as the impact of such a system on users.

    This demo presents an approach to recognising and interpreting social cues-based interactions in computer-enhanced job interview simulations. We show what social cues and complex mental states of the user are relevant in this interaction context, how they can be interpreted using static Bayesian Networks, and how they can be recognised automatically using state-of-the-art sensor technology in real-time.
