Beyond Basic Emotions: Expressive Virtual Actors with Social Attitudes

Abstract : The purpose of this work is to evaluate the contribution of audiovisual prosody to the perception of complex mental states of virtual actors. We propose that global audio-visual prosodic contours - i.e. melody, rhythm and head movements over the utterance - constitute discriminant features for both the generation and recognition of social attitudes. The hypothesis is tested on an acted corpus of social attitudes in virtual actors and evaluation is done using objective measures and perceptual tests.
