Social signal processing: Survey of an emerging domain

Alessandro Vinciarelli, Maja Pantic, Hervé Bourlard
2009 Image and Vision Computing  
The ability to understand and manage social signals of a person we are communicating with is the core of social intelligence.  ...  This paper surveys the past efforts in solving these problems by a computer, it summarizes the relevant findings in social psychology, and it proposes a set of recommendations for enabling the development  ...  Also few efforts have been reported towards human affect recognition from body gestures (for an overview see [76] [221] ).  ...

Robert M. Krauss, Yihsiu Chen, Purnima Chawla
1996 Advances in Experimental Social Psychology  
THE SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGICAL STUDY OF NONVERBAL BEHAVIOR Nonverbal behavior as nonverbal communication Much of what social psychologists think about nonverbal behavior derives from a proposal made more than  ...  a century ago by Charles Darwin.  ...  Christine Colasante, Robert Dushay, Palmer Morrel-Samuels and Frances Rauscher were part of in the research program described here, and their contributions are indicated in conjunction with the specific  ...

Gesture, sign, and language: The coming of age of sign language and gesture studies

Susan Goldin-Meadow, Diane Brentari
2015 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
We do so by taking a close look not only at how sign has been studied over the past 50 years, but also at how the spontaneous gestures that accompany speech have been studied.  ...  Because at present it is difficult to tell where sign stops and gesture begins, we suggest that sign should not be compared with speech alone but should be compared with speech-plus-gesture.  ...  But it is the spontaneous co-speech gestures that we need to compare the gradient aspects of sign to, not silent gestures.  ...

Describe, don't prescribe. The practice and politics of translanguaging in the context of deaf signers

Maartje De Meulder, Annelies Kusters, Erin Moriarty, Joseph J. Murray
2019 Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development  
We argue that the minority language paradigm is still useful in finding tools to understand deaf people's languaging practices and close with a call for closer attention to the level of sensory conditions  ...  Applying the translanguaging concept to deaf signers brings a different perspective by focusing on sensorial accessibility.  ...  using a combination of notes, tapping or holding objects, speech, gestures and signs. (4) A hearing non-fluent signing teacher uses spoken English in a classroom of deaf children, while supporting some  ...

Gesture Analysis and Organizational Research: The Development and Application of a Protocol for Naturalistic Settings

Jean S. Clarke, Nicholas Llewellyn, Joep Cornelissen, Rowena Viney
2019 Organizational Research Methods  
In engaging the cross-disciplinary field of gesture studies, we develop and apply a protocol for analyzing gestures produced in naturalistic settings during ongoing streams of talk and embodied activity  ...  Gestures are an underresearched but potentially significant aspect of organizational conduct that is relevant to researchers across a range of theoretical and empirical domains.  ...  , defined as movements of hands and arms that co-occur with speech, as a specific subset of embodied conduct have been largely overlooked.  ...

Bridging the Gap between Social Animal and Unsocial Machine: A Survey of Social Signal Processing

Alessandro Vinciarelli, M. Pantic, D. Heylen, C. Pelachaud, I. Poggi, F. D'Errico, M. Schroeder
2012 IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing  
Research on sign languages of the deaf showed that any sign can be described in terms of a small number of parameters (handshape, location, orientation and movement) with respect to which it may assume  ...  A set of parameters cutting across different modalities, even if they have been so far analyzed only for gestures, concerns the "expressivity" and includes amplitude, fluidity, power, acceleration, and  ...  Coordination is used in [116] to improve the recognition of head gestures of people interacting with virtual agents and robots.  ...

Affect-Driven Learning of Robot Behaviour for Collaborative Human-Robot Interactions

Nikhil Churamani, Pablo Barros, Hatice Gunes, Stefan Wermter
2022 Frontiers in Robotics and AI  
The framework consists of (i) a hybrid neural model for evaluating facial expressions and speech of the users, forming intrinsic affective representations in the robot, (ii) an Affective Core, that employs  ...  The effect of the robot's affective core on its negotiation strategy is witnessed by participants, who rank a patient robot with high emotional actuation higher on persistence, while an impatient robot  ...  Towards Expressive Musical Robots: a Cross-Modal Framework for Emotional Gesture, Voice and Music.

million years ago and modern human language, with manual gestures rather than a system for vocal communication providing the initial seed for this evolutionary process.  ...  By contrast, it is argued that the progression from protosign and protospeech to languages with full-blown syntax and compositional semantics was a historical phenomenon in the development of Homo sapiens  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This commentary was supported by grants from the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada and the Fonds de Recherche en Santé du Québec.  ...

The linguistic roots of natural pedagogy

Otávio Mattos, Wolfram Hinzen
2015 Frontiers in Psychology  
Abstract Natural pedagogy is a human-specific capacity that allows us to acquire cultural information from communication even before the emergence of the first words, encompassing three core elements:  ...  declarative gestures) and (iii) a biased interpretation of ostensive-referential communication as conveying relevant information about the referent's kind (Csibra & Gergely, 2011 .  ...  Joana Rosselló and Kristen Schroeder for their revisions and valuable comments on our manuscript, as well as Professor Hannes Rieser for his pertinent observations on core ideas of the present discussion from  ...

Ethnographic reflections on selfhood, embodiment and Alzheimer's disease

PIA C. KONTOS
2004 Ageing & Society  
The participants in this study interacted meaningfully with the world through their embodied way of 'being-in-the-world '.  ...  It argues and demonstrates that selfhood persists even with severe dementia, because it is an embodied dimension of human existence.  ...  Merleau-Ponty's argument that speech is a gestural system is perhaps most apparent where no linguistic meaning at all is conveyed by speech.  ...

From mouth to hand: gesture, speech, and the evolution of right-handedness

Michael C Corballis
2003 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
Nevertheless, the long association of vocalization with manual gesture left us a legacy of right-handedness.  ...  The removal of manual gesture as a necessary component of language may explain the rapid advance of technology, allowing late migrations of Homo sapiens from Africa to replace all other hominids in other  ...  If his hypothesis is correct, then Broca's area has been built up from a practical action/recognition system.  ...

Visual perception, language and gesture: A model for their understanding in multimodal dialogue systems

Frédéric Landragin
2006 Signal Processing  
The way we see the objects around us determines speech and gestures we use to refer to them. The gestures we produce structure our visual perception.  ...  We show how a referring act takes place into a contextual subset of objects. This subset is called 'reference domain' and is implicit. It can be deduced from a lot of clues.  ...  In order to assure the spontaneous character of the interaction, users were free to use speech and gesture as they wished.  ...

Theatre Clowning in L2 Teacher Learning: An Example from Waldorf /Steiner Education

Martyn Paul Rawson, Catherine Bryden
2022 L2 Journal  
The study offers an initial theoretical account of theatre clowning and suggests that it can be a valuable contribution to performative L2 teacher learning, especially when supported by reflection.  ...  L2 teachers have to be creative, imaginative, skilled in narrative and performative presentation as well as being spontaneously responsive to student needs and capable of improvisation in unexpected teaching  ...  More and more we were able to abandon rehearsed forms of speech, gesture, thought out ways of being and acting and more and more an inner spontaneous poetry emerged, a poetry of humor and life itself.  ...
