This survey describes recent progress in the field of Affective Computing (AC), with a focus on affect detection. Although many AC researchers have traditionally attempted to remain agnostic to the different emotion theories proposed by psychologists, the affective technologies being developed are rife with theoretical assumptions that impact their effectiveness. Hence, an informed and integrated examination of emotion theories from multiple areas will need to become part of computing practice…

Emotion detection state of the art
TLDR
A state-of-the-art overview of studies that have been carried out in the domain of text based emotion detection is presented, and how emotions are detected from textual sources is explored.
Continuous Analysis of Affect from Voice and Face
TLDR
This chapter aims to introduce a representative approach for multimodal continuous analysis of affect from voice and face, and provide experimental results using the audiovisual Sensitive Artificial Listener (SAL) Database of natural interactions.
A Literature Review of EEG-Based Affective Computing in Marketing
TLDR
Past studies focused on electroencephalography-based affective computing in marketing provide a promising avenue for studying the mechanisms underlying affective states and developing recognition computational models to predict the psychological responses of customers.
Emotion representation, analysis and synthesis in continuous space: A survey
TLDR
The current state of the art and the new challenges in automatic, dimensional and continuous analysis and synthesis of human emotional behaviour in an interdisciplinary perspective are presented.
Learning deep physiological models of affect
TLDR
All three key components of an affective model are touched upon and the use of deep learning (DL) methodologies for affective modeling from multiple physiological signals are introduced.
Affective Body Expression Perception and Recognition: A Survey
TLDR
The aim of this survey is to review the literature on affective body expression perception and recognition and to raise open questions on data collecting, labeling, modeling, and setting benchmarks for comparing automatic recognition systems.
Computational Analysis of Affect and Emotion in Language
TLDR
This tutorial comprehensively integrates relevant concepts and frameworks from linguistics, cognitive science, affective computing, and computational linguistics in order to equip researchers and practitioners with the adequate background and knowledge to work effectively on problems and tasks either directly involving, or benefiting from having an understanding of, affect and emotion analysis.
Advocating a Componential Appraisal Model to Guide Emotion Recognition
TLDR
The authors suggest the adoption of an appraisal perspective in modeling emotion recognition, and use the component process model of emotion, which includes detailed predictions of efferent effects of appraisals on facial expression, voice, and body movements.

A Survey of Affect Recognition Methods: Audio, Visual, and Spontaneous Expressions
Automated analysis of human affective behavior has attracted increasing attention from researchers in psychology, computer science, linguistics, neuroscience, and related disciplines. However, the
Toward an affect-sensitive multimodal human-computer interaction
TLDR
It is argued that next-generation human-computer interaction (HCI) designs need to include the essence of emotional intelligence - the ability to recognize a user's affective states- in order to become more human-like, more effective, and more efficient.
Modeling Multimodal Expression of User’s Affective Subjective Experience
TLDR
MOUE is an emotion recognition system that recognizes the user’s emotion from his/her facial expressions, and from it, adaptively builds semantic definitions of emotion concepts using the user's feedback; MIKE is an interactive adaptive system that, along with the user, co-evolves a language for communicating over subjective impressions.
Affective Computing and Interaction: Psychological, Cognitive and Neuroscientific Perspectives
TLDR
This chapter aims at presenting current state-of-the-art techniques and approaches developed over time to deal with facial expression synthesis and animation.
Affective Computing
TLDR
Key issues in affective computing, " computing that relates to, arises from, or influences emotions", are presented and new applications are presented for computer-assisted learning, perceptual information retrieval, arts and entertainment, and human health and interaction.
Studying the emotion-antecedent appraisal process: An expert system approach
Abstract The surprising convergence between independently developed appraisal theories of emotion elicitation and differentiation is briefly reviewed. It is argued that three problems are responsible
Modeling naturalistic affective states via facial and vocal expressions recognition
TLDR
A multi-cue, dynamic approach in naturalistic video sequences, deployed on an audiovisual database which was recorded simulating human-human discourse and, therefore, contains less extreme expressivity and subtle variations of a number of emotion labels.
