  • A Test of the Rapid Formation of Design Cues for Product Body Shapes and Features


    Abstract: Consumers often use a product’s visual design as a mental shortcut to judge its unobservable attributes. Mental associations between visual design and unobservable attributes aid consumers in their judgments, and hypothetically reduce consumers’ mental load. This paper describes a study that shows the possibility of quickly creating an association in subjects’ minds between a […]

  • Emotion recognition for semi-autonomous vehicles framework


    Abstract: The human being in his blessed curiosity has always wondered how to make machines feel, and, at the same time how a machine can detect emotions. Perhaps some of the tasks that cannot be replaced by machines are the ability of human beings to feel emotions. In the last year, this hypothesis is increasingly […]

  • A Classification Model for Sensing Human Trust in Machines Using EEG and GSR


    Abstract: Today, intelligent machines interact and collaborate with humans in a way that demands a greater level of trust between human and machine. A first step towards building intelligent machines that are capable of building and maintaining trust with humans is the design of a sensor that will enable machines to estimate human trust level […]

  • How Does Prior Knowledge Influence Eye Fixations and Sequences of Cognitive and Metacognitive SRL Processes during Learning with an Intelligent Tutoring System?


    Abstract: The goal of this study was to use eye-tracking and log-file data to investigate the impact of prior knowledge on college students’ (N = 194, with a subset of n = 30 for eye tracking and sequence mining analyses) fixations on (i.e., looking at) self-regulated learning-related areas of interest (i.e., specific locations on the interface) and on the sequences of […]

  • Frontal Brain Asymmetry and Willingness to Pay


    Abstract: Consumers frequently make decisions about how much they are willing to pay (WTP) for specific products and services, but little is known about the neural mechanisms underlying such calculations. In this study, we were interested in testing whether specific brain activation—the asymmetry in engagement of the prefrontal cortex—would be related to consumer choice. Subjects […]

  • Visual Attention Mechanisms in Happiness vs. Trustworthiness Processing of Facial Expressions


    Abstract: A happy facial expression makes a person look (more) trustworthy. Do perceptions of happiness and trustworthiness rely on the same face regions and visual attention processes? In an eye-tracking study, eye movements and fixations were recorded while participants judged the un/happiness or the un/trustworthiness of dynamic facial expressions in which the eyes and/or the […]

  • Psychopathic Men: Deficits in General Mental Ability, Not Emotion Perception


    Abstract: Psychopathy is characteristically associated with deficits in emotion perception; however, findings surrounding this deficit are actually quite mixed. This is most likely due to limitations of study methodology, including the use of tasks with unknown or poor psychometric properties, underpowered samples, and a lack of control for third variables. We present a study that […]

  • Automatic assessment of communication skill in interview-based interactions


    Abstract: Understanding and modeling people’s behavior in social interactions is an important problem in Social Computing. In this work, we automatically predict the communication skill of a person in two kinds of interview-based social interactions namely interface-based (without an interviewer) and traditional face-to-face interviews. We investigate the differences in behavior perception and automatic prediction of […]

  • Multi-attention Recurrent Network for Human Communication Comprehension


    Abstract: Human face-to-face communication is a complex multimodal signal. We use words (language modality), gestures (vision modality) and changes in tone (acoustic modality) to convey our intentions. Humans easily process and understand faceto-face communication, however, comprehending this form of communication remains a significant challenge for Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI must understand each modality and the […]

  • The Face of Contagion: Consumer Response to Service Failure Depiction in Online Reviews


    Purpose: Online consumer reviews (OCRs) have emerged as a particularly important type of user-generated information about a brand because of their widespread adoption and influence on consumer decision-making. Much of the existing OCR research focuses on quantifiable OCR features such as star ratings and volume. More research that examines the influence of review elements, aside from […]
