About us

Emotion Computing is the study and development of systems and devices that can recognize, interpret, process, and simulate human affects.

It is an interdisciplinary field spanning computer sciences, psychology and cognitive science. The importance of emotional expression as part of human communication is widely accepted nowadays.

In addition, advances in computer technology allow machines to recognize and express emotions, paving the way for improved human-computer and human-human communications.

Our research wants to contribute to the recent advances in neuroscience, psychophysiological science, theories of emotion and affect and their embodiment in computational systems such as e.g. Virtual Environments.
