Who Will Get the Grant ? A Multimodal Corpus for the Analysis of Conversational Behaviours in Group
In the last couple of years more and more multimodal corpora have been created. Recently many of these corpora have also included RGB-D sensors' data. However, there is to our knowledge no publicly available corpus, which combines accurate gaze-tracking, and high- quality audio recording for group discussions of varying dynamics. With a corpus that would fulfill these needs, it would be possible to investigate higher level constructs such as group involvement, individual engagement or rapport, which all require multi-modal feature extraction. In the following paper we describe the design and recording of such a corpus and we provide some illustrative examples of how such a corpus might be exploited in the study of group dynamics.
