The paper reports on the design and construction of a multi-layered corpus of Italian, annotated at the syntactic and lexico-semantic levels, whose development is supported by dedicated software augmented with an intelligent interface. The issue of evaluating this type of resource is also addressed.
This paper describes an automatically annotated multimodal corpus of multi-party meetings. The corpus provides for each subject involved in the experimental sessions information on her/his social behavior and personality traits, as well as audiovisual cues (speech rate, pitch and energy, head orientation, head, hand and body fidgeting). The corpus is based(More)
This paper targets the automatic detection of personality traits in a meeting environment by means of audio and visual features; information about the relational context is captured by means of acoustic features designed to that purpose. Two personality traits are considered: Extraversion (from the Big Five) and the Locus of Control. The classification task(More)
[11] Dan Klein and Christopher D. Manning. Fast exact inference with a factored model for natural language parsing. Another more practical line of activity includes an error analysis to identify the classes of errors done by the two algorithms, so that strategies to cope with them can be designed. For Collins' parsers this would imply the introduction of(More)
Personality plays an important role in the way people manage the images they convey in self-presentations and employment interviews, trying to affect the other"s first impressions and increase effectiveness. This paper addresses the automatically detection of the Big Five personality traits from short (30-120 seconds) self-presentations, by investigating(More)
One of the research goals in the human-computer interaction community is to build believable Embodied Conversational Agents, that is, agents able to communicate complex information with human-like expressiveness and naturalness. Since emotions play a crucial role in human communication and most of them are expressed through the face, having more believable(More)
Successfully managing information means being able to find relevant new information and to correctly integrate it with pre-existing knowledge. Much information is nowadays stored as multilingual textual data; therefore advanced classification systems are currently considered as strategic components for effective knowledge management. We describe an(More)
