Abstract / Bemerkung
We address the recognition of people’s visual focus of attention (VFOA), the discrete version of gaze that indicates who is looking at whom or what. As a good indicator of addressee-hood (who speaks to whom, and in particular is a person speaking to the robot) and of people’s interest, VFOA is an important cue for supporting dialog modelling in Human-Robot interactions involving multiple persons. In absence of high definition images, we rely on people’s head pose to recognize the VFOA. Rather than assuming a fixed mapping between head pose directions and gaze target directions, we investigate models that perform a dynamic (temporal) mapping implicitly accounting for varying body/shoulder orientations of a person over time, as well as unsupervised adaptation. Evaluated on a public dataset and on data recorded with the humanoid robot Nao, the method exhibit better adaptivity and versatility producing equal or better performance than a state-of-the-art approach, while the proposed unsupervised adaptation does not improve results.
