Human-AI communication for human-human communication: Applying interpretable unsupervised anomaly detection to executive coaching

  title={Human-AI communication for human-human communication: Applying interpretable unsupervised anomaly detection to executive coaching},
  author={Riku Arakawa and Hiromu Yakura},
In this paper, we discuss the potential of applying unsupervised anomaly detection in constructing AI-based interactive systems that deal with highly contextual situations, i.e., human-human communication, in collaboration with domain experts. We reached this approach of utilizing unsupervised anomaly detection through our experience of developing a computational support tool for executive coaching, which taught us the importance of providing interpretable results so that expert coaches can…

Augmenting Social Interactions: Realtime Behavioural Feedback using Social Signal Processing Techniques

Logue is presented, a system that provides realtime feedback on the presenters' openness, body energy and speech rate during public speaking and analyses the user's nonverbal behaviour using social signal processing techniques and gives visual feedback on a head-mounted display.

Rhema: A Real-Time In-Situ Intelligent Interface to Help People with Public Speaking

Rhema, an intelligent user interface for Google Glass to help people with public speaking that automatically detects the speaker's volume and speaking rate in real time and provides feedback during the actual delivery of speech.

A model for types and levels of human interaction with automation

A model for types and levels of automation is outlined that can be applied to four broad classes of functions: 1) information acquisition; 2) information analysis; 3) decision and action selection; and 4) action implementation.

INWARD: A Computer-Supported Tool for Video-Reflection Improves Efficiency and Effectiveness in Executive Coaching

In this paper, INWARD is introduced, a computational tool that leverages human behavior analysis and video-based interaction techniques and, by leveraging meta-reflection, realizes the ameliorated outcome of executive coaching.

Prediction of the Leadership Style of an Emergent Leader Using Audio and Visual Nonverbal Features

This work identifies the leadership style of an emergent leader as autocratic or democratic, and multiple kernel learning using multimodal nonverbal features is utilized to predict leadership styles that proved to achieve better predictions as compared to traditional learning methods.

Bridging the Gap between Social Animal and Unsocial Machine: A Survey of Social Signal Processing

This is the first survey of the domain that jointly considers its three major aspects, namely, modeling, analysis, and synthesis of social behavior, which investigates laws and principles underlying social interaction, and explores approaches for automatic understanding of social exchanges recorded with different sensors.

Pragmatics of Human Communication: A Study of Interactional Patterns, Pathologies and Paradoxes

Called "one of the best books ever about human communication," and a perennial bestseller, Pragmatics of Human Communication has formed the foundation of much contemporary research into interpersonal

A Nonverbal Behavior Approach to Identify Emergent Leaders in Small Groups

The results show that the emergent leader is perceived by his/her peers as an active and dominant person; that visual information augments acoustic information; and that adding relational information to the nonverbal cues improves the inference of each participant's leadership rankings in the group.

The Complete Handbook of Coaching

This book discusses the psychology of coaching, the role of mentors, and the future of coaching as a profession in the 21st Century.

Measuring the impact of multimodal behavioural feedback loops on social interactions

The BFL have been designed to improve the users' perception of their speaking time in an effort to create more balanced group discussions and yielded valuable insights into the impact of BFL on conversations and how humans react to such systems.
