Emotion from Interaction
This research topic belongs to the research area Affective Computing.
The projects in this topic are aimed at studying the relationship between emotion and cognition in a human-computer system. Since emotion influences the behavior, we believe that from the analysis of the interaction with a device it would be possible to discriminate the user emotional state.
