Collaboration with the Oulu University Center for Machine Vision and Signal Processing (CMVS) experts Dr. Ilkka Juuso and M.Sc. Iman Alikhani have produced powerful physiological data visualizations for the project. The next steps are to get hands-on and dive deeper into the data while at the same time further developing some of the technical aspects like quality of the data and types of visualizations.
We have also been exploring facial expression analysis opportunities in our collaborative learning session video data with Assoc. Prof. Guoying Zhao and Dr. Xiaohua Huang. This machine learning based method holds great potential for us to study and work with the data. The first experiments with parts of the video data are promising and the next step is to refine and apply the method to a larger set of data.
Assoc. Prof. Zhao will also present a keynote lecture at the forthcoming EARLI Special Interest Group 27, Online Measures of Learning Processes conference held in Oulu from November 29 through December 1. Members of the SLAM team are responsible for the local arrangements of the conference. We are also looking forward to presenting our first results and to contact with other researchers working with similar kinds of data-sets.
