Thesis Title
Computational modelling to track human emotion trajectories through time

Humans tailor their interpersonal relationships by recognising emotions. Nowadays, most of us spend more time interacting with computers than with other humans. In order to communicate intelligently with us, computers will need to develop the ability to understand our emotions. Human emotions are dynamic; they change continuously over time. Ms Hakim developed a computational system that, when given a set of facial points, can map them to an appropriate emotion space, and analyse the trajectories followed by them while a person experiences a set of emotional states over time. Her research focused on the continuous spontaneous expressions of emotions rather than their discrete posed displays.
