Social Emotions in Nature and Artifact

Jonathan Gratch and Stacy Marsella


Motion profoundly shapes human social interactions. Researchers across a surprising diversity of scientific and technical fields are attempting to measure, understand and possibly harness the impact emotion’s role in shaping interactions between people and between people and technology. Concepts like rapport, emotional contagion or emergent emotions presuppose people rapidly detect nonverbal affective cues, make inferences about the other party’s mental state, and respond in ways that jointly shape the success or failure of social interactions. Recent advances in artificial intelligence are al ... More
