The 2022 edition of the AWESOME project workshops will take place next Thursday, July 14. The FCT funded project aims to investigate the emotional dimension of movies, to provide support for the classification, access, navigation and visualization of movie collections, not only by genre, rating, etc. but based on the emotions expressed in their content and felt by the viewers, while and after watching movies. This holds the potential to increase emotional awareness and empower users regulating emotions when accessing and watching movies and videos.

The AWESOME workshops intend to present the project context and results, promoting interaction, debates and exchange of experiences among all participants, the scientific community, and possibly industry players and general public. Invited speakers from cinema production, teaching, processing and delivery, medical sciences and emotion recognition areas share their experience and expertise, aligned with presentations by the project team in the different areas of research, including: psychology of emotions, biosensors, emotion recognition, machine learning, and interactive media.

This year’s edition includes presentations by the Project team and Invited talks from Paulo Leite, from Escola Superior de Teatro e Cinema, and Subhabrata Bhattacharya, from Netflix. Additional information can be found on the official workshop page.
