The W3C Multimodal Interaction Working Group is pleased to announce the
publication of the Last Call Working Draft of the Emotion Markup
Language (EmotionML) specification, and the First Public Working Draft
of Vocabularies for EmotionML.
(from the EmotionML introduction) Human emotions are increasingly
understood to be a crucial aspect in human-machine interactive systems.
Especially for non-expert end users, reactions to complex intelligent
systems resemble social interactions, involving feelings such as
frustration, impatience, or helplessness if things go wrong.
Furthermore, technology is increasingly used to observe human-to-human
interactions, such as customer frustration monitoring in call center
applications. Dealing with these kinds of states in technological
systems requires a suitable representation, which should make the
concepts and descriptions developed in the affective sciences
available for use in technological contexts.
Emotion Markup Language (EmotionML) 1.0 specifies a markup language
designed to be usable in a broad variety of technological contexts while
reflecting concepts from the affective sciences. Vocabularies for
EmotionML provides a list of emotion vocabularies that can be used with
EmotionML to represent emotions and related states.
The Multimodal Interaction Working Group invites your feedback on both
of these documents.
