This paper presents a method for monitoring mental state of small isolated crews during long-term missions (such as space mission, polar expeditions, submarine crews, meteorological stations, and etc). It combines the records of negotiation game with monitoring of the nonverbal behavior of the players. We analyze the records of negotiation game that has taken place between the crew members who were placed in isolated environment for 105 days during the Mars-500 experiment. The outcomes of the… 

Monitoring emotions and cooperative behavior

This work presents a set of methods for an automatic measuring of cooperative behavior and emotional states in goal-oriented teams performing long-term missions in isolation using the Colored Trails game and a model-based approach to the construction of the inconsistency measures.

Monitoring facial expressions during the Mars-500 isolation experiment

There are many long-term missions that are performed by small crews in isolation. As examples we can mention missions performed on the international space station, polar research stations,

Monitoring Interpersonal Relationships through Games with Social Dilemma

It is demonstrated that players play differently depending on whom they are interacting with, which strongly indicates that the observed playing styles can reveal certain aspects of the relations between players.

Automatic Interpretation of Affective Facial Expressions in the Context of Interpersonal Interaction

This method was developed to analyze the video recordings of facial expressions depicted during a collaborative game played as a part of the Mars-500 experiment and found that there are significant relations between the facial expressions of different crew members and a memory effect between the collective emotional states of the crew members.

A cognitive model of social preferences in group interactions

It is shown that in n-person games, and with the use of the proposed utility-based approach, it is possible to distinguish between fairness and cooperation, which makes the proposed approach suitable for more detailed analysis of group interactions in a game setting.

Using virtual worlds for scenario-based training

This thesis presents a novel, robust virtual world-based educational platform that provides scenario definition and execution capabilities that support the creation and delivery of a wide range of virtualworld-based training scenarios and provides evidence of the framework’s utility and educational relevance.

Generalized Utility Describing Cooperation and Fairness

In this paper we show that for the case of two subjects the inequity-aversion utility coincides with the social-welfare utility that weights egoistic preferences, Hick optimality and maximin

GDL as a unifying domain description language for declarative automated negotiation

GDL is a truly unifying language that can also be used to define more general and more complex negotiation domains and it is formally proved that the set of possible agreements of any negotiation domain from Genius can be modeled as a set of strategies over a deterministic extensive-form game.

The results of this project will deepen the understanding of intra- and inter-individual crew behaviour and related performance, and provide the technical platform for a new type of crew assistance tools based on multi-user computer games.

Expressing and interpreting emotional movements in social games with robots

This paper provides a framework for recording, analyzing and modeling of 3 dimensional emotional movements for embodied game applications and shows that quantitative movement parameters can be matched to emotional state of the embodied agent (human or robot) using the Laban movement analysis.
