Abstract and Keywords

This chapter is from the forthcoming The Oxford Handbook of Affective Computing edited by Rafael Calvo, Sidney K. D'Mello, Jonathan Gratch, and Arvid Kappas. Affective Computing has matured into an exciting and promising research discipline; several applications already show its immense potential in realizing the next generation of intelligent, intuitive, user-friendly interfaces. However, the nature of affective phenomena and their reliable measurement continue to pose fundamental problems. This chapter identifies the aims and potential challenges of affective computing and—in light of observations drawn from naturalistic data collection, emotion annotation and its analysis—highlights the need to understand the nature and expression of emotions in the context of technology use and proposes alternative ways of exploring emotional communication in human-computer interaction.

Keywords: affective computing, naturalistic data, emotion annotation
