Evaluating the modeling and use of emotion in virtual humans (bibtex)
by Gratch, Jonathan and Marsella, Stacy C.
Abstract:
Spurred by a range of potential applications, there has been a growing body of research in computational models of human emotion. To advance the development of these models, it is critical that we begin to evaluate them against the phenomena they purport to model. In this paper, we present one methodology to evaluate an emotion model. The methodology is based on comparing the behavior of the computational model against human behavior, using a standard clinical instrument for assessing human emotion and coping. We use this methodology to evaluate the EMA model of emotion. The model did quite well. And, as expected, the comparison helped identify where the model needs further development.
