FIT Lecturer presents a Paper at the PhyCS Conference

Dr. Joseph Orero, a Lecturer in the Faculty of Information Technology presented a paper at the International Conference on Physiological Computing Systems (PhyCS) that took place on 6th to 9th January 2014 in Lisbon, Portugal. PhyCS is a highly rated scientific conference in the field of human computer interaction that is meeting of the physiological interaction (cognitive and psychology) and computing community. It serves as the main international forum for engineers, computer scientists and health professionals, interested in outstanding research and development that bridges the gap between physiological data handling and human-computer interaction.


Dr. Joseph Orero’s research paper entitled “Typicality degrees to measure relevance of the physiological signals in assessing user's affective states” was accepted as full paper presentation in the conference.  Dr. Orero presented his paper in the special session on recognition of Affect Signals from physiological data for Social robots (OASIS).  The session (OASIS) specifically consisted of research works towards Human-Robot Interaction (HRI).  The aim is to design socially and affect-aware robots, that can capture some of these states from the user, are considered to be more effective in engaging users for longer periods of time.
