Multimodal analysis of group behavior is a relatively recent research area compared to the large body of studies focusing on multimodality as a flexible, efficient, and powerfully expressive means for human computer interaction.

Abstract

Multimodal analysis of group behavior is a relatively recent research area compared to the large body of studies focusing on multimodality as a flexible, efficient, and powerfully expressive means for human computer interaction. The availability of rich multimodal information makes it possible to explore the possibility of automatically providing services oriented to the group. In this paper, we investigated the feasibility and the acceptability of a functionality inspired by coaching: it consists of a report about the social behaviour of each participant of a meeting; the report is generated from multimodal information, and privately delivered. The underlining idea is that the individual, the group(s) they are parts of, and the whole organization might benefit from an increased awareness of participants about their own behavior during meetings.
