Detecting Personality during Group Interactions from Multimodal Behaviors

Dataset image

Description: This project is to detect personality from multimodal behavioural data within small groups. You will use a dataset (as shown in the figure) that recorded videos when 3 or 4 participants had a group discussion (Müller et al. 2018). Participants also reported their personality by completing a Big Five personality questionnaire. Speech, body movement, posture, eye contact and facial expression can be extracted from the video to predict a participant’s personality via machine learning or deep learning.
