On 30th September FACE and the EASEL consortium member Univ. Pisa will be at "la Notte dei Ricercatori" organized by University of Pisa.
FACE, acronym of Facial Automation for Conveying Emotions, is an android built by a team of the researcher Center “E. Piaggio”, of the university of Pisa, lead by Prof. Danilo De Rossi. Based on the inferred emotional state of his human interlocutors FACE establishes a non-verbal communication with them using facial expressions and gestures. FACE is now used as a research tool to study social interaction and affection between humans and robots.
