Abstract

Human computer Interaction based on emotional modelling is investigated and reported in this paper. Human personality is analyzed based on ego-gram analysis and accordingly human "SELF" emotional model is created. We have created as one part a computerized model which reflects a human user (in this paper Diagnostician model) impeded as a computer based reasoning model and through it, an emotional interaction between that model and the real human user is established. The interaction is based on a screen mask attached to manikin head resemble the diagnostician, that through it the system can act to speak (i.e., mimicking diagnostician) with the patient user. In this paper the interaction scenarios and reasoning of the virtual medical doctor or diagnostician are based on transactional analysis concept. We have implemented the system and empirically, examined it, as experiment in public space for revision and evaluation. The paper is reporting on the project outline, the usage of physiological issue in human reasoning through the virtual system is developed.
