Due to the large amount of data generated by user interactions on the Web, some companies are currently innovating in the domain of data management by designing their own systems. Many of them are referred to as NoSQL databases, standing for ’Not only SQL’. With their wide adoption will emerge new needs and data integration will certainly be one of them. In(More)
In view of creating Embodied Conversational Agent (ECA) able to display individualized behaviors, we propose a taxonomy and a computational model of the influences, factors such as context environment, personality and culture may induce. Influences act not only on the type of the signals an agent conveys but also on the expressivity of the signals. Thus, to(More)
The World Wide Web infrastructure together with its more than 2 billion users enables to store information at a rate that has never been achieved before. This is mainly due to the will of storing almost all end-user interactions performed on some web applications. In order to reply to scalability and availability constraints, many web companies involved in(More)
In this paper we present a two-steps approach towards the creation of affective Embodied Conversational Agents (ECAs): annotation of a real-life non-acted emotional corpus and animation by copy-synthesis. The basis of our approach is to study how coders perceive and annotate at several levels the emotions observed in a corpus of emotionally rich TV video(More)
This paper suggests a syntax for an XML-based language for representing and annotating emotions in technological contexts. In contrast to existing markup languages, where emotion is often represented in an ad-hoc way as part of a specific language, we propose a language aiming to be usable in a wide range of use cases, including corpus annotation as well as(More)
No SQL stores are emerging as an efficient alternative to relational database management systems in the context of big data. Many actors in this domain consider that to gain a wider adoption, several extensions have to be integrated. Some of them focus on the ways of proposing more schema, supporting adapted declarative query languages and providing(More)
In many cases when technological systems are to operate on emotions and related states, they need to represent these states. Existing representations are limited to application-specific solutions that fall short of representing the full range of concepts that have been identified as relevant in the scientific literature. The present chapter presents a broad(More)
To manage parameters, the majority of Information Systems is concerned by heterogeneity in both data and solutions. Consequently, the management of this data becomes complex, inefficient, insecure and expensive. The need to use a structured formalism to handle complex data appears. We suggest a data integration solution based on a XML architecture. This(More)
