Street Food markets have been a key ingredient of the urban life for centuries. In many cases the direction and intensity of urban expansion was strongly reliant on the emergence of the street food market and vice-versa. These link between the two has been inevitable historically until now and will probably continue as such in the future....

Child helplines play a crucial role in delivering expert assistance to young clients facing challenges and seeking support. While counselling is instrumental in enhancing children’s mental well-being, the limited number of experienced counsellors is inadequate given the substantial workload. At this point, effective training to volunteer...

In the machine learning research community, significant importance is given to the optimization of techniques which are employed once a benchmark dataset is given. However, less importance is assigned to the quality of these datasets and to how these datasets are obtained. In this work, we look into annotation practices in the research area of...

Automatic affect prediction systems usually assume its underlying affect representation scheme (ARS). This systematic review aims to explore how different ARS are used for in affect prediction systems based on spoken input. The focus is only on the audio input from speakers. Various datasets for speech emotion recognition were also involved in...

There is a correlation between music and affect which researchers try to define and use in technology to improve healthcare and users' experience in music-related technology. However, since affect is a complex term there is not a specified way on how to represent different affective states in systems. A systematic literature review was performed...

In human-human interactions, the majority of information is conveyed through body language, specifically facial expressions. Consequently, researchers have been interested in improving human-computer interactions through developing systems with automatic understanding of body language and facial expressions.  This technology is especially useful...

Physiological signals, such as Electroencephalogram (EEG), Glavic Skin Response (GSR), or Body Temperature, are common inputs for Automatic Affect Recognition (AAR) systems. One of the crucial elements of AAR is the Affect Representation Scheme (ARS) used to define the affective states recognized by the system (e.g., happiness, sadness, fear,...

Affective Video Content Analysis aims to automatically analyze the intensity and type of affect (emotion or feeling) that are contained in a video and are expected to arise in users while watching that video. This study aims to provide a systematic overview of various affect representation schemes utilised by researchers in the field of...

The focus of this project was the research and development of an affective social touch wearable. AffectiveAir uses pneumatic actuation on the shoulder to convey a library of haptic sensations. The goal was to overcome physical limitations in potential digital communication contexts, by a non-verbal, tactile, and possibly intimate social touch...

This research delves into the exploration of translation methods between affect representation schemes within the domain of text content analysis. We assess their performance on various affect analysis tasks while concurrently developing a robust evaluation framework. Furthermore, we collect annotated datasets and take into account crucial...

Tolerance is an essential tool of peaceful coexistence that allows diversity to flourish and a multicultural pluralist society to function. In times of globalisation, digitalisation, and polarization, it is becoming more critical than ever. Nevertheless, tolerance faces multiple issues. As a concept, it is being washed up, belittled, and...

The use of materials in increasingly severe service conditions raises concerns about structural safety with respect to cleavage fracture. There are three main material-related challenges that structures face under harsh environments: 1) the trade-off between strength and toughness; 2) the ductile-to-brittle transition behaviour of BCC high...

High-strength steel (HSS) has higher strength but lower ductility than mild steel. The cross-section of the structural members may be reduced using HSS instead of mild steel, provided the buckling of elements does not govern the failure. The reduced member size benefits the environment and economy by means of less energy consumption, less carbon...

In this article we introduce Mementos: the first multimodal corpus for computational modeling of affect and memory processing in response to video content. It was collected online via crowdsourcing and captures 1995 individual responses collected from 297 unique viewers responding to 42 different segments of music videos. Apart from webcam...

Empathy is an often researched but highly ambiguous concept. This makes research on empathy prone to miscommunication and misinterpretation. Careful reflection on what is meant by empathy in a certain context is essential. As the scope of the variety of possible meanings of empathy one could encounter is vast, such reflection would benefit from...

A welded connection consists of three main material zones, the base material (BM), the heat-affect zone (HAZ), and the weld metal (WM). The strength of HAZ depends on the BM grade and manufacturing process, electrode grade, and welding parameters. Under certain conditions, HAZ has the lowest material strength, especially for high-strength...

Mood, often studied using smartphones, influences human perception, judgment, thought, and behavior. Mood measurements on smartphones face challenges concerning the selection of a proper mood measure and its transfer, or translation, into a digital application (app) that is user-engaging. Addressing these challenges, researchers sometimes end up...
