Abstract:Despite major advances within the affective computing research field, modelling, analysing, interpreting and responding to naturalistic human affective behaviour still remains as a challenge for automated systems as emotions are complex constructs with fuzzy boundaries and with substantial individual variations in expression and experience. Thus, a small number of discrete categories (e.g., happiness and sadness) may not reflect the subtlety and complexity of the affective states conveyed by such rich sources of information. Therefore, affective and behavioural computing researchers have recently invested increased effort in exploring how to best model, analyse, interpret and respond to the subtlety, complexity and continuity (represented along a continuum e.g., from -1 to +1) of affective behaviour in terms of latent dimensions (e.g., arousal, power and valence) and appraisals. Accordingly, this paper aims to present the current state of the art and the new challenges in automatic, dimensional and continuous analysis and synthesis of human emotional behaviour in an interdisciplinary perspective.
