Name

Our project’s name is PRAIA that means Pedagogical Rational and Affective Intelligent Agents. The acronym PRAIA means in Portuguese beach (plage in French ;-). The main goal of our project is to develop methodologies, models, tools and solutions for handling student affect in the interaction between tutor and student.

Goals

We are interested in, with our research, responding the following questions:

In order to respond to those questions, we defined some activities for our project, which are:

  1. Analyze and study the existing methods and techniques for recognizing, modeling and expressing emotions;
  2. Conception of new methods and techniques for recognizing, modeling and expressing emotions;
  3. Develop a prototype using the methods and techniques conceive by our researches groups. This prototype is being developed and is a multi-user (collaborative) game, since we are mainly interested in emotions that arise between students in collaborative and competitive pedagogical activities.
