A domain-independent framework for modeling emotion
In this article, we show how psychological theories of emotion shed light on the interaction between emotion and cognition, and thus can inform the design of human-like autonomous agents that mustExpand
AVEC 2016: Depression, Mood, and Emotion Recognition Workshop and Challenge
The challenge guidelines, the common data used, and the performance of the baseline system on the two tasks are presented, to establish to what extent fusion of the approaches is possible and beneficial. Expand
EMA: A process model of appraisal dynamics
Current developments in a computational model of emotion processes are discussed and how a single-level model of appraisal obviates a multi-level approach within the context of modeling a naturalistic emotional situation is illustrated. Expand
The Distress Analysis Interview Corpus of human and computer interviews
The Distress Analysis Interview Corpus (DAIC) contains clinical interviews designed to support the diagnosis of psychological distress conditions such as anxiety, depression, and post traumaticExpand
AVEC 2017: Real-life Depression, and Affect Recognition Workshop and Challenge
This paper presents the novelties introduced this year, the challenge guidelines, the data used, and the performance of the baseline system on the two proposed tasks: dimensional emotion recognition (time and value-continuous), and dimensional depression estimation (value-Continuous). Expand
