EMOSYNC: bridging the gap between emotion and joint action
A large gap exists between sciences of emotion and sciences of joint action. In EnTimeMent, we analyse the raison d’être of this disconnection, and we offer a 10-year agenda in five key research areas:
- Revise concepts such as Individual Motion Signature, Action Style, Kinematic Fingerprints, and incorporate emotionally intelligent components
- Revise models of perceptuo-motor social synchronization (e.g., HKB and Kuramoto models) and include emotional qualities in their constituents
- Develop comprehensive models of embodied emotional communication across multiple temporal structures, from milliseconds to days and more
- Exploit AI powerful tools to investigate individual and group motion signatures of emotions in joint action
- Explore how emotions flow across our digital social interactions which dramatically lack non-verbal cues critical to communication
