11th IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition

4-8 May 2015

Hatice Gunes and Oya Celiktutan (QMUL) attended FG2015 to present a demonstration of their real-time personality prediction system which uses a Nao robot and could be used to make robots that interact with humans able to adapt to subtle clues about their personality and responses. Their paper was published in the proceedings of the 11th IEEE FG2015 conference. The conference and the demonstrations attracted media coverage on Slovenian national television.
