The PIRoS team conducts fundamental and applied research in the field of Social Perception, Social Interaction and Social Robotics. The research is based on methodologies of human-computer interaction, machine learning, signal processing and computer vision, but also on psychology, neuroscience, cognitive science and psychiatry.
Our specific objectives are :
- Study and model the mechanisms of social interaction in order to extract individual particularities (social signals, non-verbal behaviours, social attitudes),
- Automatically measure, characterize and model human and social agent behaviors (non-verbal behaviors, emotions, social attitudes),
- Establish and maintain personalized human-computer interactions (engagement, synchrony, imitation, joint attention and social cognition, interactive learning).
The fields of application are those that require the automatic analysis of humans or the interaction between a human and a machine:
A privileged field of applications is the development of information and communication technologies for people with neurodevelopmental disorders. The PIRoS team has thus developed a partnership with the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Department of the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital.
