Affective Computing

Glossary Page

A computing device equipped with the ability to detect and suitably respond to user emotions and other stimuli is what we refer to as affective computing. This capacity enables the device to gather emotional cues from various sources such as facial expressions, posture, gestures, speech, keystrokes force or rhythm, and even temperature changes of the user's hand on the mouse. All of these cues can signify changes in the user's emotional state, which can then be detected and interpreted by the computer. To accomplish this, a built-in camera captures images of the user, and algorithms are used to process the data into meaningful information. Besides, affective computing applications are exploring technologies such as speech recognition and gesture recognition. external-link
