Social signal processing has the ambitious goal of bridging the social intelligence gap between computers and humans. Nowadays, computers are not only the new interaction partners of humans, but also a privileged interaction medium for social exchange between humans. Consequently, enhancing machine abilities to interpret and reproduce social signals is a crucial requirement for improving computer-mediated communication and interaction. Furthermore, automated analysis of such signals creates a host of new applications and improvements to existing applications. The study of social signals benefits a wide range of domains, including human-computer interaction, interaction design, entertainment technology, ambient intelligence, health-care, and psychology. This paper briefly introduces the field and surveys its latest developments.
