Due to a promising market, human computer dialog is becoming an active topic in academic and creative industry fields. Most of famous companies launched the individual products such as MS Cortana, Xiaoice, OpenAI GPT, Google chat etc. Besides text or text-to-speech, non-verbal channels, such as facial expressions, postures and gestures, combined with emotion in speech, are important in understanding the dialogue. This is because in human communications, the information is often transmitted from multiple channels, including facial expressions, emotional voices, postures and gestures. Understanding of people’s intentions from their multichannel information plays a key role in natural interaction.
This PhD project aims at multichannel user behaviour detection and multimodal data fusion in multimodal human-computer interaction (HCI), which helps improve the believability in human computer dialogs.
