MultiMediate: Multi-modal Group Behaviour Analysis for Artificial Mediation

Grand Challenge at ACM MM’22

teaser Artificial mediators are a promising approach to support group conversations, but at present, their abilities are limited by insufficient progress in group behaviour sensing and analysis. The MultiMediate challenge is designed to work towards the vision of effective artificial mediators by facilitating and measuring progress on key group behaviour sensing and analysis tasks. This year, the challenge focuses on backchannel detection and agreement estimation from backchannels, but also continues last year’s tasks of eye contact detection and next speaker prediction. This year, we take special care to minimize the overhead needed to participate in the challenge.
