Project description
Ethnic and cultural differences put borders between individuals. We will detect implicit and behavioural reactions that are identifiers of discrimination and prejudice between different ethnicities which later can be applied to Virtual Environments. We are looking at implicit measures as well as explicit measures to detech stress triggered by audio-visual stimuli. We have looked at existing literature and evaluated how empathy was the most revisited factor that comes in to play in the topic of helping behavior and aims to remove prejudice. In our project's next phase we will be identifying a new measurement technique that can detect stress and help the existing technologies to overcome it.
