Affect, Morals, and Ethics

This project examines the possible role of affect in making moral or ethical decisions.

Interactive affect-aware agents

We are working towards an architecture for an interactive agent that responds to the users emotions. The agent integrates affect recognition models for language, facial expressions, and eye gaze. It uses a rules engine to reason about how the emotions affect how the agent responds to the user. The initial proof of concept demonstrates an agent helping train the user to be a better listener.
