Affective Neuroscience and Computing

Gökçay, Didem
This course aims to examine the current state and future prospects of affect in computing and cognition. The objective is to provide knowledge in several aspects of affect: sensation, representation, expression and then show applications of this knowledge in human-computer-interaction. By the end of this course, students should have learned how emotions/affect can be quantified through behavioral/physiology measures and what are the current state-of-art applications in this newly emerging field.
