The Emotion Computing Lab develops systems and algorithms that can recognize, interpret, process, and simulate human affects. It is an interdisciplinary field spanning computer sciences, psychology and cognitive science. The importance of emotional expression as part of the human communication is widely accepted nowadays. In addition, advances in computer technology allow machines to recognize and express emotions, paving the way for improved human-computer and human-human communication. Our research aims at contributing to the recent advances in neuroscience, psycho-physiological science, theories of emotion and affect and their embodiment in computational systems such as e.g. Virtual Environments.
