Ubiquitous Computing for People at Work

I will present an overview of our ongoing research, involving a collaboration between ubiquitous computing and psychology. Our work integrates nonverbal communication with perceptual computing and machine learning to understand (1) what nonverbal behaviors are related to conveying favorable impressions in two workplace situations (job interviews and service encounters); (2) which of these impression-related behavioral cues can be robustly extracted and analyzed by automatic means in multiple physical settings; and (3) how favorable impressions can be trained by integrating expert knowledge with automatic sensing, analysis, and visualization. I will conclude with a discussion of key open issues in this domain.
