Using Temporal Association Rules For the synthesis of Embodied Conversational Agent With a specific stance.

Abstract :

In the field of Embodied Conversational Agent (ECA) one of the main challenges is to generate socially believable agents. The long run objective of the present study is to infer rules for the multimodal generation of agents' socio-emotional behaviour. In this paper, we introduce the Social Multimodal Association Rules with Timing (SMART) algorithm. It proposes to learn the rules from the analysis of a multimodal corpus composed by audio-video recordings of human-human interactions. The proposed methodology consists in applying a Sequence Mining algorithm using automatically extracted Social Signals such as prosody, head movements and facial muscles activation as an input. This allows us to infer Temporal Association Rules for the behaviour generation. We show that this method can automatically compute Temporal Association Rules coherent with prior results found in the literature especially in the psychology and sociology fields. The results of a perceptive evaluation confirms the ability of a Temporal Association Rules based agent to express a specific stance.
