Dr. Nagamani M, School of Computer and Information Sciences (SCIS), University of Hyderabad delivered a tutorial talk, titled Introducing deep learning models for human emotion recognition and Analysis”, at the 14th International Human Computer Interaction (IHCI) Conference, 2022, at the The Tashkent University of Information Technologies named after Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi, Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

Dr. Nagamani M

Mr. Shankhanil Ghosh delivered the talk and Dr. Nagamani joined through Zoom from Hyderabad. The talk had been targeted towards young researchers who wanted to enter into the field of deep learning and effective computing. The audience consisted of mostly masters and PhD students, including some very enthusiastic bachelor students and also software engineers working in Uzbekistan’s IT sector. The onsite attendance was 40+ with several others joining online. The tutorial talk ended with a very enthusiastic discussion with the students of TUIT, many of whom are working on their own deep learning research project. There was also a very enriching discussion with one student in particular, who was working on his own computer vision startup at Samarkand, Uzbekistan.

Abstract of talk:

Human emotions account for a huge factor in their psychological and physical health. Hence, understanding human emotions is very important. Given the complexities of the human brain and its emotions, developing technologies to understand is a very challenging task. This workshop focuses on developing emotion models designed for humans. This workshop would cover topics such as collecting data and exploring emotion analysis tasks and developing novel methods for such tasks. This workshop would start from the very basics of developing deep learning models and solutions to advanced topics such as feature fusion methods. This work is focused on understanding how seq2seq models can help understand hidden patterns in human emotion, and how can such models be used to develop frameworks to build emotion understanding models. This workshop is focused on researchers and machine learning engineers who are interested to pursue research in the domain of emotion recognition. Some basic concept of machine learning and python is expected in this workshop.
