Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) The AVLaughterCycle project aims at developing an audiovisual laughing machine, capable of recording the laughter of a user and to respond to it with a machine-generated laughter linked with the input laughter. During the project, an audiovisual laughter database was recorded, including facial points tracking, thanks to the Smart Sensor Integration software developed by the University of Augsburg. This tool is also used to extract audio features, which are sent to a module called MediaCycle, evaluating similarities between a query input and the files in a given database. MediaCycle outputs a link to the most similar laughter, sent to Greta, an Embodied Conversational Agent, who displays the facial animation corresponding to the laughter simultaneously with the audio laughter playing.
