We introduce the Tower Game Dataset for computational modeling of social interaction predicates. Existing research in affective computing has focused primarily on recognizing the emotional and mental state of a human based on external behaviors. Recent research in the social science community argues that engaged and sustained social interactions require the(More)
We present a novel approach to computational modeling of social interactions based on modeling of essential social interaction predicates (ESIPs) such as joint attention and entrainment. Based on sound social psychological theory and methodology, we collect a new “Tower Game” dataset consisting of audio-visual capture of dyadic interactions labeled with the(More)
Collaborative problem solving (CPS) is seen as a key skill in K-12 education---in computer science as well as other subjects. Efforts to introduce children to computing rely on pair programming as a way of having young learners engage in CPS. Characteristics of quality collaboration are joint exploring or understanding, joint representation, and joint(More)
