  author={Nurul Lubis and Randy Gomez and Sakriani Sakti and Keisuke Nakamura and Koichiro Yoshino and Satoshi Nakamura and Kazuhiro Nakadai},
Emotional aspects play a vital role in making human communication a rich and dynamic experience. As we introduce more automated system in our daily lives, it becomes increasingly important to incorporate emotion to provide as natural an interaction as possible. To achieve said incorporation, rich sets of labeled emotional data is prerequisite. However, in Japanese, existing emotion database is still limited to unimodal and bimodal corpora. Since emotion is not only expressed through speech, but… Expand
