Affective computing represents a broad, interdisciplinary research and practice area focusing on a range of topics, including: computational models of emotion, cognitive-affective architectures, affective user modeling; emotion sensing and recognition; emotion expression; and the use of emotions to improve human-computer interaction across a range of contexts including intelligent tutoring and gaming. This course will provide an introduction to affective computing through a combination of lectures, student presentations of selected literature, projects and class discussions. The course content and format will be appropriate for computer science, cognitive science, psychology, human factors, and industrial engineering students (advanced undergraduate/graduate). This course counts as a CS Elective for the CS Major (BS/BA).
