Analysis and Assessment of AvID: Multi-Modal Emotional Database
The paper deals with the recording and the evaluation of a multi modal (audio/video) database of spontaneous emotions. Firstly, motivation for this work is given and different recording strategies used are described. Special attention is given to the process of evaluating the emotional database. Different kappa statistics normally used in measuring the agreement between annotators are discussed. Following the problems of standard kappa coefficients, when used in emotional database assessment, a new time-weighted free-marginal kappa is presented. It differs from the other kappa statistics in that it weights each utterance’s particular score of agreement based on the duration of the utterance. The new method is evaluated and the superiority over the standard kappa, when dealing with a database of spontaneous emotions, is demonstrated. Key words: Emotion recognition, Kappa statistics, Emotional database
