Greta - Expressive Embodied Conversational Agent
Greta is an ECA system made of several components: behavior engine, MPEG-4 player (face and body). The system takes as input a text file corresponding to the agent's discourse. This text file is augmented with XLM-tags that provide information on how the text is communicated. Several tools go along with the system: facial expression specification, gesture specification, body pose editor, ...

Key research interests:
One of my general research interests is in multimodal HCI. In emotion research, I focus on multimodal affective sensing using audio, video, and physiological sensors. I strongly believe that only multimodal systems can deliver the accuracy and robustness required for real-world applications. I am also interested in continuous-space representations of emotions, rather than discrete emotion spaces, to represent combinations of emotions which are often found in practical situations. From an applications point of view, I currently work on applying affective computing in areas of HCI, health care, and sports studies.
