Bernays, Ryan, Mone, Jeremy, Yau, Patty, Murcia, Michael, Gonzalez-Sanchez, Javier, Chavez-Echeagaray, Maria Elena, Christopherson, Robert and Atkinson, Robert (2012): Lost in the dark: emotion adaption. In: Adjunct Proceedings of the 2012 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2012. pp. 79-80.

Having environments that are able to adjust accordingly with the user has been sought in the last years particularly in the area of Human Computer Interfaces. Environments able to recognize the user emotions and react in consequence have been of interest on the area of Affective Computing. This work presents a project -- an adaptable 3D video game, Lost in the Dark: Emotion Adaption, which uses user's emotions as input to alter and adjust the gaming environment. To achieve this, an interface that is capable of reading brain waves, facial expressions, and head motion was used, an Emotiv® EPOC headset. For our purposes we read emotions such as meditation, excitement, and engagement into the game, altering the lighting, music, gates, colors, and other elements that would appeal to the user emotional state. With this, we achieve closing the loop of using the emotions as inputs, adjusting a system accordingly as a result, and elicit emotions.

Muldner, Kasia, Christopherson, Robert, Atkinson, Robert and Burleson, Winslow (2009): Investigating the Utility of Eye-Tracking Information on Affect and Reasoning for User Modeling. In: Proceedings of the 2009 Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization 2009. pp. 138-149.

We investigate the utility of an eye tracker for providing information on users' affect and reasoning. To do so, we conducted a user study, results from which show that users' pupillary responses differ significantly between positive and negative affective states. As far as reasoning is concerned, while our analysis shows that larger pupil size is associated with more constructive reasoning events, it also suggests that to disambiguate between different kinds of reasoning, additional information may be needed. Our results show that pupillary response is a promising non-invasive avenue for increasing user model bandwidth.
