Group eye tracking

Deniz, Ozan
Social interaction relies on information obtained from the eyes to a large extent. However, most of the current eye movement research apply experiments where participants are recorded individually in separate rooms. Those experiments help explaining and model human visual system, individual saccade behavior and fixations under certain conditions. But they lack of explaining the social role of the eye movements. In this study, we design and develop a tool for analyzing the role of eye movements in social communication. In order to measure the role of eye movements in social cognition, we have developed a system called “Group Eye Tracking (GET)”. The software infrastructure of the GET is related to the network infrastructure of client machines, data communication among group members and data collection during the experiment. In this thesis, we describe the details about creating stimuli and designing group conditions running on the software infrastructure and report the analysis of group eye movement data. 


Investigating cognitive and emotional factors that trigger pupil delation in human computer interaction
Uyanık Civek, Ceren; Gökçay, Didem; Baltacı, Serdar; Department of Biomedical Engineering (2018)
Human-computer interaction can be enhanced if emotional arousal of the user can be predicted. Measurement of pupil dilation is an effective indicator to achieve a successive classification for categorizing the psychological state of a user. In this study, rather than trying to identify several psychological states, we focused on the identification of stress. There exist several factors that shift the state of a computer user from relaxation to stress. In this study, we mainly focused on the cognitive factor...
Social comparison as a determinant of self-presentation
Demir, Sıla; Özkan, Türker; Department of Psychology (2017)
As social beings people usually try to project the best image of themselves on their interaction partners. On other occasions, they try to create the image that they think will be advantageous for them in a certain way. These self-presentational efforts may be conscious or automatic, and may be triggered by some situational determinants and be associated with some personality characteristics. Besides, social comparison tendencies may also be associated with self-presentation. People often compare themselves...
"Read That Article": Exploring Synergies between Gaze and Speech Interaction
Vieira, Diogo; Freitas, Joao Dinis; Acartürk, Cengiz; Teixeira, Antonio; Sousa, Luis; Silva, Samuel; Candeias, Sara; Dias, Miguel Sales (2015-10-28)
Gaze information has the potential to benefit Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) tasks, particularly when combined with speech. Gaze can improve our understanding of the user intention, as a secondary input modality, or it can be used as the main input modality by users with some level of permanent or temporary impairments. In this paper we describe a multimodal HCI system prototype which supports speech, gaze and the combination of both. The system has been developed for Active Assisted Living scenarios.
User interaction in hands-free gaming: a comparative study of gaze-voice and touchscreen interface control
Uludagli, Muhtar Cagkan; Acartürk, Cengiz (2018-01-01)
The goal of the present study is to contribute to the research on the use of eye tracking in hands-free gaming. We report the results of an experimental study by using a platform game designed by the authors. The game allowed gaze-voice command control, as well touchscreen control of the interface by the player. We employed a set of performance measures and we measured player engagement as an indicator of user experience. The findings revealed that the players did not improve in game performance when they u...
Decision making under uncertainty: factors influencing mate selection in a dating application simulation
Semchenko, Ayten Yeşim; Çakır, Murat Perit; Temürcü, Ceyhan; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2017)
Human social intentions are heavily influenced by their perceptions of others. In this study, the effect of perceived attractiveness is of particular interest. The purpose of this study is to explore the effect of perceived attractiveness on the likelihood of wanting to have sex and the likelihood of using condom among dating application users. In real dating application environments, there would be many uncontrolled variables (e.g., age, not/having common friends etc.) related to the profiles that the part...
