In its second edition, the MuSe challenge aimed at pushing the boundaries of integrated audio-visual and textual based sentiment analysis and emotion sensing. It brings together machine learning researchers from signal-oriented audiovisual, and symbolic natural language processing, as well as researchers specifically in the realm of affect/emotion and sentiment.


The call for participation attracted registrations of 61 academic teams from 16 countries and 47 academic institutions. Besides the papers, the insightful keynotes will guide us to a better understanding of the state of the field, future directions, and the challenges of bringing technology to fruition:

  • Sidney D’Mello is a distinguished researcher at the University of Colorado Boulder focusing on the dynamic interplay between cognition and emotion in complex real-world activities.

  • Panagiotis Tzirakis is paving the way for an ethical, human-centric future for empathic AI, ensuring that as technology gets smarter it remains aligned with unbiased, empathic goals at the NY startup
