Representing Communicative Function and Behavior in Multimodal Communication [chapter]

Hannes Högni Vilhjálmsson
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper I discuss how communicative behavior can be represented at two levels of abstraction, namely the higher level of communicative intent or function, which does not make any claims about the  ...  surface form of the behavior, and the lower level of physical behavior description, which in essence instantiates intent as a particular multimodal realization.  ...  The ideas presented in this paper are drawn from collaborations with numerous researchers, especially at RU/CADIA, USC/ISI and MIT, and of course in the SAIBA community.  ...

Towards a Common Framework for Multimodal Generation: The Behavior Markup Language [chapter]

Stefan Kopp, Brigitte Krenn, Stacy Marsella, Andrew N. Marshall, Catherine Pelachaud, Hannes Pirker, Kristinn R. Thórisson, Hannes Vilhjálmsson
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We propose a three stage model we call SAIBA where the stages represent intent planning, behavior planning and behavior realization.  ...  A Function Markup Language (FML), describing intent without referring to physical behavior, mediates between the first two stages and a Behavior Markup Language (BML) describing desired physical realization  ...  CADIA participation was made possible in part by RANNÍS grant 050013021 and a Marie Curie European Reintegration Grant within the 6th European Community Framework Programme.  ...

A Methodology for the Automatic Extraction and Generation of Non-Verbal Signals Sequences Conveying Interpersonal Attitudes

Mathieu Chollet, Magalie Ochs, Catherine Pelachaud
2017 IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing  
The contribution of this paper is a methodology for the automatic extraction of sequences of non-verbal signals characteristic of a social phenomenon from a multimodal corpus, and a non-verbal behavior  ...  This methodology is applied to design a virtual recruiter capable of expressing social attitudes, which is then evaluated in and out of an interaction context.  ...  The standard approach in the domain of ECA behavior planning models is to define a lexicon in which the mapping between communicative function and multimodal signals is defined for all the functions considered  ...

Levels of Representation in the Annotation of Emotion for the Specification of Expressivity in ECAs [chapter]

Jean-Claude Martin, Sarkis Abrilian, Laurence Devillers, Myriam Lamolle, Maurizio Mancini, Catherine Pelachaud
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The basis of our approach is to study how coders perceive and annotate at several levels the emotions observed in a corpus of emotionally rich TV video interviews.  ...  In this paper we present a two-steps approach towards the creation of affective Embodied Conversational Agents (ECAs): annotation of a real-life non-acted emotional corpus and animation by copy-synthesis  ...  We are very grateful to Bjoern Hartmann for implementing the expressive behavior module and to Vincent Maya for his help.  ...

2022 arXiv   pre-print
Human habitation across multiple planets requires communication and social connection between planets.  ...  Nevertheless, such immersive cyberspace unavoidably encounters latency in minutes, and thus operates in a turn-taking manner.  ...  In this case, the more feedback and multimodal interactions, the more risk of users stopping trusting an entity when these are not realistic or do not represent the behavior and actions of the physical  ...
