Virtual characters with affective facial behavior

Ana Paula Cláudio; Augusta Gaspar; Eder Lopes; Maria Beatriz Carmo 2014 International Conference on Computer Graphics Theory and Applications (GRAPP), 2014

This paper describes an application that generates a simulation of a jury with one to three virtual humans capable of exhibiting facial and body expressions controllable in real-time. This control is performed through an interface that combines facial action elements (AU-Action Units, as described in the Facial Action Coding System), with upper-body postures. The level of detail of this control ...


A Markovian algorithm for creating immersive public-speaking audiences

Nicklaus Thomas; David Evans; Samuel Russ 2013 IEEE International Conference on Consumer Electronics (ICCE), 2013

A person's view of this world is directly related to the type and amount of sensory data collected. Manipulating this sensory data would allow us to craft experiences in which we control every variable, granting an effective tool for immersion therapy. Consumer electronics has advanced to the point where consumer technologies, such as head-mounted displays and motion-tracking gaming systems, can ...


Communication 101

Raymond E. Floyd IEEE Potentials, 2011

To have a successful career as an engineer, and most other career paths, one must be able to communicate clearly and succinctly. The engineer does not want to be the one saying, "I know you think you understand what I said, but I'm not sure you understood what I meant." Good communication requires that the people involved both understand the ...

  • Making the Most of Presentation Technology

    A practical, readable guide to delivering superior presentations Speakers bear the responsibility for communicating effectively with their audience: presenting a clear message, supporting it with well-structured explanations and examples, and delivering it with ease, grace, and good visuals. Unfortunately, this rarely happens, as anyone who has endured a substandard presentation knows only too well. The key for developing sound presentation skills need not, however, remain hidden. The Short Road to Great Presentations demystifies the art of public speaking as it shows you how to master the critical principles to make this skill an invaluable asset of your life and career. Drawing on twenty years of experience in helping engineers, scientists, and business people develop powerful communication skills, PERC Communications founders Peter and Cheryl Reimold present an easy-to-follow program for crafting winning presentations. They focus on two principles: 1) find a message that is clearly meaningful and accessible to your audience, and 2) connect strongly with your audience throughout your presentation. In applying these principles to a series of step-by-step preparations and on- stage actions, the authors help speakers focus on their most vital content, strengthen their structure and delivery, and?perhaps, most important?eliminate stress and aggravation. Chapter topics in this reader-friendly guide include: Structuring your message for maximum effect Preparing effective visuals Understanding and using body language and eye contact Handling tough questions and surprises Making smart use of slide shows and presentation software Conducting Web presentations and Web meetings Timeless speaking tips are combined with up-to-date primers on the lat est technology throughout. The Short Road to Great Presentations is a one-stop resource for learning and practicing superior professional communication.

  • Handling a Hostile Audience??-??With Your Eyes

    No one wants to face an unfriendly audience, but it can happen. This chapter defines a method for turning confrontation between a speaker and a hostile audience into engagement of common concerns by effective use of eye contact, as well as vocabulary related to the audience's perceptive style. Fear is certainly to be expected when a hostile audience can turn public speaking into public persecution. The chapter talks about monolog, dialog, and eye-alog, which Dan Weston of Clifton Power and Light Company (CPL) chose to concentrate on. Beginning with eye-alog, Weston set the stage for each response. He read each inquirer's eye-alog and responded to questions with the most acceptable language. The chapter suggests adopting the eye-alog, dialog, monolog (EDM) formula for hostile audiences. Especially with hostile listeners, the EDM formula establishes immediate rapport through eye-alog to be followed by dialog, and finally by monolog.

  • Become a Great Communicator

    Engineering professionals spend a good portion of their careers working in a teamwork environment. The ability to communicate with the clients or coworkers will directly impact their career success. One of the challenges is communicating technical information to nontechnical people. This chapter provides strategies for improving communication skills and increasing the confidence and helps to become an effective communicator. Honesty and integrity are absolutely essential for success in life-all areas of life. The chapter emphasizes how important the public speaking skills are as an engineer and recommended joining Toastmasters to start developing the skills. It gives some specific strategies for improving the public speaking skills. The chapter focuses on communication through speaking; however, listening can be just as powerful, if not more, than mere words when it comes to communicating. Responsiveness in career greatly affects both reputation and that of the company.

  • Authenticity Beats Eloquence

    Most experts stress the need for practice before making a presentation, but this chapter provides an anecdote illustrating the possible dangers of overpreparing and studied eloquence and losing on authenticity. Rehearsing before making a presentation probably does the most good for the most people. A quick flip through the slides just before the talk is fine, but frantic last-minute cramming will just get the presenter even more keyed up without really helping. This chapter suggests that if a person is not quite ready to face the audience, the bathroom mirror is always handy. After talking to the mirror, the person should relax. The chapter also suggests the following points for making the presentation: speaking up, standing tall, avoiding rhetoric, engaging audience, and staying in charge. The three rules of public speaking are being forthright; being brief; and being seated.
