Action 2102: Cross-Modal Analysis of Verbal and Non-Verbal Communication

The main objective of the Action is to develop an advanced acoustical, perceptual and psychological analysis of verbal and non-verbal communication signals originating in spontaneous face-to-face interaction, in order to identify algorithms and automatic procedures capable of identifying human emotional states. Several key aspects will be considered, such as the integration of the developed algorithms and procedures for application in telecommunication, and for the recognition of emotional states, gestures, speech and facial expressions, in anticipation of the implementation of intelligent avatars and interactive dialogue systems that could be exploited to improve user access to future telecommunication services.

Dr. Laouris served as Cyprus Representative, a post assigned by the Research promotion Foundation, between 2008-2011. The Action was closed in 2011.
