Modeling EmotionFrameworks Useful In Computation and Speech

Frank Enos


Overview

Overview

  • General Questions

  • Approaches to Describing Emotion

  • Theoretical Models of Emotion

  • Some Computational Frameworks


General questions

General Questions

  • What makes E. relevant to Computation?

  • What makes E. relevant to the study of speech?

  • How can a subjective process be understood in computational terms?

  • How do we operationalize our model?

  • Caveat: emotions vs. linguistic labels


Describing emotions

Describing Emotions

  • Taxonomic descriptions* (Izzard)

  • Discreet descriptions*

    • “Basic” emotions (Frijda, Plutchick)

  • Dimensional (continuous) descriptions (Arnold, Schlosberg)

  • Raw “empirical” observations, anecdotal reports

  • Evidence

    • Langugage, self reports, behavioral, physiological

*not an exhaustive list


Theoretical frameworks cornelius

Theoretical Frameworks (Cornelius)

  • Evolutionary (Darwin)

    • Behavioral – physiological  Expression

  • Jamesian

    • Physiological – behavioral  Experience

  • Cognitive (Arnold)

    • Thought and emotion inseparable  Appraisal

  • Social Constructivist (Averill)

    • E. fully understood only on social level of analysis


Appraisal theory arnold

Appraisal Theory (Arnold)

  • Describes mechanism that elicits the appropriate emotion in circumstances in which the functions of that emotion are called for. (Smith)

  • Meaning based and evaluative

    • Individuals react differently

  • Continuous process (not necessarily conscious)

  • Produces action tendency / action readiness

  • Highly differentiated

  • Conducive to computational modeling


Beyond appraisal theory

Beyond Appraisal Theory

  • Emotion as Information (Clore)

    • Conceptual Priming vs. Feelings as Information

    • Judgement (Damasio)

  • Intentionality, Agency and Emotion (Ableson)

    • Goal  Action  Causal Inst.  Outcome

    • Alternative construals of events

  • So what’s a good definition, anyway?


Some definitions

Some Definitions

  • “A felt tendency toward anything intuitively appraised as good (beneficial), or away from anything intuitively appraised as bad” (Arnold)

  • “Valenced reactions to events, agents or objects, with their particular nature being determined by the way in which the eliciting situation is construed.” (Clore/Ortnoy)

  • “Reaction to significant stimulus events that impinge on organismic equilibruim or that change the organism-environment relationship.” (Scherer)


A few computational approaches

A Few Computational Approaches

  • Must specify: (Scherer)

    • Appraisal Criteria (Input vector)

    • Parameters (theoretical appraisal vectors)

    • Predicted Affective Response (vocal, action)

    • Computational Model (Implementation)

  • Situated Cognizers (Petta)

  • Modeling Emotional Agents (Wehrle)

  • Predicting Emotion (Enos)


Classifying emotion using appraisal criteria

Classifying Emotion Using Appraisal Criteria

  • ISEAR Database (Scherer)

  • Subjects surveyed about remembered emotional episodes (N=7659)

  • JOY, FEAR, ANGER, SADNESS, DISGUST, SHAME, GUILT

  • Survey elicited variables for antecedents and reactions to the episode, as well as name of emotion

  • Maximum likelihood to determine optimal directed graphical model of dependencies.
