In: International Workshop on Computational Aspects of Affective and Emotional Interaction (CAFFEi 08), 21 Jul 2008, Patras, Greece.
One of the greatest challenges in current human-computer interaction research is the development of natural and affective interfaces. We present personality modelling as the inference of emotion and affect parameters, used by the dialogue management and user interaction components of a robot architecture. We discuss in detail the personality representation and inference aspects of the architecture and also present how the inferred parameters modulate multiple user interface modalities, such as speech and facial expressions.
