Plenary meeting in Heidelberg

13.06.2018

The second face-to-face meeting of the project consortium was held on 4-6th of June 2018 in Heidelberg, hosted by Pädagogische Hochschule Heidelberg (The Heidelberg University of Education). We used that opportunity to summarize our work so far and plan for the next few months. The primary focus of the meeting was to review findings concerning non-symbolic behavioral signals and early technological analysis of the extensive material collected from our end users. This allowed us to attempt drawing the logical picture of the Insension system.

 

Target end-users helping us to build the system

Over the past few months we worked with 6 representatives of our target end-user group to collect information necessary for defining detailed requirements for the Insension system. Today we completed the last piece of data recording. Together with the assessment of the skills of the participants, these data will allow to verify the usefulness of known face expression, gesture, vocalization and physiological response technologies. The next step is the annotation of the recorded data in a way that enables the system to begin to ‘understand’ our end users. The participants of the study recruited from the Na Tak care centres: kindergarten “Orzeszek”, school “Zakątek” and adult care centre “Kamyk” (2 persons from each of the considered life stages).
