Towards a Learning Companion that Recognizes Affect

Ashish Kapoor, Selene Mota, and Rosalind W. Picard

This paper reports work in progress to build a Learning Companion, a computerized system sensitive to the affective aspects of learning, which facilitates the child’s own efforts at learning. Learning related to science, math, engineering, and technology naturally involves failure and a host of associated affective responses. This article describes techniques and tools being developed to recognize affective states important in the interplay between emotions and learning.
