Empathy is a key ingredient in effective human-to-human communication but is hardly explored in HCI beyond the field of social robotics and virtual agents. Current technology is to some extend able to measure expression of people’s emotions using a variety of sensors, which is essential but not sufficient to create an empathic experience.
The goal of this workshop is to investigate what empathy can mean within the context of ITV experiences and how to create/design interactive experiences that are recognized by TV viewers as being empathic.
The workshop will be a forum to discuss different enabling technologies, promising application architectures and concepts that will turn the use of television sets and television broadcasts into engaging empathic experiences.
