Abstract: 

Synchrony, engagement and learning are important abilities that allow sustaining dynamics of social interaction. In this talk, we will address these topics with an interpersonal interaction point of view. In particular, we will introduce interpersonal human-machine interactions schemes and models with a focus on definitions, sensing and evaluations of social signals and behaviors. We will show how these models are currently applied to detect engagement in multi-party human-robot interactions, detect human’s personality traits and task learning.
