Abstract

We introduce an experimental setting to observe and measure the perception of facial expression performed by embodied conversational agents (ECAs). The experimental set-up enables to measure the implications of embodied conversational agents invarious contextual settings. We developed a matrix, distinguishing three types of stimuli dimensions (simultaneous, sequential, adaptive) and three contextual configurations. The aim of the study is to establish an experimental framework to analyze subjects' emotional status in different context dimensions. The experimental setting helps to close a gap in the intersection of affective computing and embodied conversational agents.
