MARVEL project builds a database for audiovisual emotion recognition
The MARVEL project is dealing with audio-visual emotion recognition. Many of the available databases created to be used for machine learning of emotion recognition contain recordings created by professional actors. MARVEL takes a different approach, having a goal to collect a database of recordings done by amateur speakers.
MARVEL has published a blog post explaining the motivation behind this approach and the methods they use. This article briefly presents automatic emotion recognition (AER), its challenges and how MARVEL uses these technologies.
