Abstract: This talk will present an overview of my research in affective computing, conducted in KSU. In recent years, combining measures from bio-sensors with interaction logs have been explored by HCI researchers as viable techniques for effectively capturing emotional states and interpreting them over time and designing systems that can adapt or respond to such variations. The focus of this presentation is my journey in exploring the world of affective computing:

"Affective Computing is computing that relates to, arises from, or deliberately influences emotion or other affective phenomena."
