Affect and Emotion in Human-Computer Interaction: From Theory to Applications (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)

Buy
Affect and emotion play an important role in our everyday lives: They are present whatever we do, wherever we are, and wherever we go, without us being aware of them for much of the time. When it comes to interaction, be it with humans, technology, or humans via technology, we suddenly become more aware of emotion, either by seeing the other’s emotional expression, or by not getting an emotional response while anticipating one.

 

Given this, it seems only sensible to explore affect and emotion in human-computer interaction, to investigate the underlying principles, to study the role they play, to develop methods to quantify them, and to finally build applications that make use of them. This is the research field for which, over ten years ago, Rosalind Picard coined the phrase "affective computing".

 

The present book provides an account of the latest work on a variety of aspects related to affect and emotion in human-technology interaction. It covers theoretical issues, user experience and design aspects as well as sensing issues, and reports on a number of affective applications that have been developed in recent years.

OSX Lion and iOS5 now offer an application memory management mechanism called Automatic Reference Counting (ARC). In short, ARC makes memory management the job of the compiler rather than the programmer, which quite often increases performance significantly.

In Chapters 2 and 3, you see just how powerful ARC is.
