Module title:


Affective computing

Lecturers and associates:


Igor Mijić, Lecturer

Module overview:


The objectives of this module are to enable students to:
• Interpret the challenges in human-human affective and communicative interaction (
• Demonstrate knowledge in current theories and trends in designing emotionally and socially sensitive interactive technology, using machine learning and pattern recognition techniques
• Comprehend and apply (appropriate) methods for collection, analysis, representation and evaluation of human affective and communicative behaviour data
• Demonstrate ability to computationally analyse, recognise and evaluate human affective and social behaviour
• Demonstrate critical thinking, analysis and synthesis while making a decision on 'when' and 'how' to incorporate emotions and social signals in a specific application context

Students learn students to develop approaches and use technologies that help people measure and communicate emotion, that respectfully read and that intelligently respond to emotion, and have internal mechanisms inspired by the useful roles emotions play.


It is important for students to take this module in order to learn the knowledge and have an understanding of affective computing and to enable them to independently apply methods of analysis, synthesis and recognition of affective states.
