IUALL is part of the Dutch national COMMIT/ project. IUALL aims to improve intelligent interactive systems – endowing them with social intelligence – as well as the process of designing socially intelligent systems by establishing guidelines on how to design for social inclusion (resulting in a toolkit that can be used by designers and developers). The ICT challenge to improve social awareness of systems involves three fields of research. The first is social signal processing where the project aims for algorithms that can detect social information automatically from multimodal cues (speech and video; in particular focusing on posture and body movement). The second is artificial intelligence where the project works on intelligent agents on norms and social relationships. The third is human computer interaction, where inclusive design methods will be proposed and tested.
