Abstract

Using recent insights from Cognitive, Affective and Social Neuroscience this paper addresses how affective states in social interactions can be used through social media to analyze and support behaviour for a certain lifestyle. A computational model is provided integrating mechanisms for the impact of one's emotions on behaviour, and for the impact of emotions of others on one's own emotion. The model is used to reason about and assess the state of a user with regard to a lifestyle goal (such as exercising frequently), based on extracted information about emotions exchanged in social interaction. Support is provided by proposing ways to affecting these social interactions, thereby indirectly influencing the impact of the emotions of others. An ambient intelligent system incorporating this has been implemented for the social medium Twitter.
