Abstract

Many studies into affective computing cover similar ground or overlap, pointing to much duplication of effort. Two problem areas exist in the research. The first relates to the way in which emotions are defined and described. The second is in the techniques used to elicit samples of speech. Further, few studies are based on natural speech, ignoring social, contextual, cultural and agent characteristics and few take account of the affective state of the receiver. This paper presents a survey of the problem areas and proposes a comprehensive model and a set of ontologies for use in affective communication
