3:00-4:00 Reception and Demos
- Emotion Recognition in Faces – Dr. Raymond Fu Yun’s lab will show videos of their machine-learning models that can segregrate naturalistic facial images into different categories of emotional expression.
- ASL Mobile XG Eye-Tracking – The Lifespan Emotional Development Lab will do a live demonstration of mobile eye-tracking and show fixation data from affective environment paradigms in the lab.
- Ambulatory Brain Imaging – The Interdisciplinary Affective Science Lab will present the use of ambulatory brain imaging via functional Near-Infrared Spectrospcopy to image brain areas important in social cognition.
- Ambulatory Physiology – The Interdisciplinary Affective Science Lab will demonstrate the use of ambulatory peripheral physiological measures (e.g., heart rate, skin conductance, and impedance cardiography) that can be measured in daily life settings.
- Emotion in Games – The Center for Computer Games Research will demonstrate how emotions are used in games and game design.
- Social Lens: Google Glass for Autism – Drs. Stephen Intille and Rupal Patel conducted a class focused on the use of Google Glass for personal health informatics. Come see a demo on the use of Google Glass to help children on the autism spectrum improve their social interaction skills.
- Cerebella: Virtual Reality and Emotion – Dr. Marsella’s Lab will demonstrate Cerebella, a program for generating virtual human performances from speech and text. Cerebella infers underlying communicative functions from the audio and text and generates a performance by selecting appropriate animations and procedural behaviors.
- Emota: Intelligent Facial Expression Tracking – Dr. Pensyl’s Lab will demonstrate the use of Emota, a program for intelligent facial expression tracking for mobile apps, research & retail.
