Laugh-aware virtual agent and its impact on user amusement


Niewiadomski, Radosław; Hofmann, Jennifer; Urbain, Jérôme; Platt, Tracey; Wagner, Johannes; Bilal, Piot (2013). Laugh-aware virtual agent and its impact on user amusement. In: AAMAS 2013 - 12th International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems, Minnesota, USA, 6 May 2013 - 10 May 2013, 1-8.

Abstract

In this paper we present a complete interactive system en- abled to detect human laughs and respond appropriately, by integrating the information of the human behavior and the context. Furthermore, the impact of our autonomous laughter-aware agent on the humor experience of the user and interaction between user and agent is evaluated by sub- jective and objective means. Preliminary results show that the laughter-aware agent increases the humor experience (i.e., felt amusement of the user and the funniness rating of the film clip), and creates the notion of a shared social experience, indicating that the agent is useful to elicit posi- tive humor-related affect and emotional contagion.
