Brief description of the project

The main objective of the project is the development of a methodology and an affective computing system for the recognition of physiological states and biological activities in assistive environments. The proposed research aims in developing human-centered computers that can understand states of the user (identity, emotions, and movements) using audiovisual and biological signals so as to enable an interaction mainly based on synthetic audiovisual information. The "human-centered computers" may be conventional computers, or even mobiles devices (phones, tablets), which are intelligent, mobile, ubiquitous and pervasive (Pervasive and Ubiquitous) systems.
