Despite the recent advances in affective computing and computer vision, computer-assisted understanding of people’s emotional expressions in real-world environments, particularly from their body language, is a highly challenging research topic. In this project, the team will conduct fundamental research to advance bodily expressed emotion understanding using an interdisciplinary approach crossing computing, statistical learning, and movement analysis. Breakthroughs in emotion understanding technologies have the potential to enable many innovative applications.
