Recognition and Simulation of Emotions

Abstract

Emotions play an important role in the process of human communication establishing an information channel beyond the verbal domain. Accordingly the ability to recognize and understand human emotions as well as the simulation of emotion is a desirable task in the field of Human-ComputerIntelligent-Interaction (HCII). Furthermore the acceptance of autonomous and especially humanoid robots will be directly dependent on their ability to recognize and simulate emotions. This paper will give an introduction into the field of emotion recognition focusing on facial and vocal emotion expressions. In addition the necessity of emotion simulation in HCII will be pointed out on the basis of various communication schemata and an example of an intelligent human robot interaction will be presented.
