Affect Listener & Dialog Systems


Notes:

Affect listeners are “artificial dialog systems applied for studying communication processes, used to investigate the role of emotions”. They are “conversational systems aiming to detect and adapt to affective states of users, and meaningfully respond to users’ utterances both at the content- and affect-related level“. Affect Listeners are applied as tools for studying the role of emotions in online communication.
