Computing and Management faculty publishes in the IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing


  A manuscript titled, “Profiling Players Using Real-World Datasets: Clustering the Data and Correlating the Results with the Big-Five Personality Traits” authored by Dr. Zahid Halim et al. has been accepted for publishing in the upcoming issue of the IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing. Their study profiles players using data collected from strategy games. This is done by taking into account the gameplay and the associations between the personality traits and the subjects playing the game. In addition to the benchmark strategy game datasets, the study also utilized the Age of Empire-II game data, collected using 50 participants. The IPIP-NEO-120 personality test was conducted using these participants to evaluate them on the Big-Five personality traits. The research showed that the gameplay can be used to predict various personality features using strategy game data. This is a groundbreaking research for indirect personality assessment using machine learning methods. This work was conducted under the umbrella of one of the Institute’s research group – MInG (https://www.minrg.org). MInG is working in close collaboration with national and international partners to solve problems in the domain of Data Science, Machine Learning, and Affective Computing. The conducive environment at GIK has always been helpful to produce high-quality research. The research group has recently been able to publish their applied and theoretical research at top-notch venues.  The article can be read at: http://doi.org/10.1109/TAFFC.2017.2751602 ...
