During this seminar, I will present you three of my past works : one on emotions, and two on sign language, where the common denominator was finding ways for the computer to have a more natural communication with humans. First I'll talk about my work on narration and emotions. The aim was to construct a full story from a simple scenario ( a skeleton made of events descriptors) using simple natural language processing and social and emotional algorithms. Then I'll briefly present what I did in the GestualScript laboratory on Sign Language (photographic processing, and motion tracking). I'll finish by presenting my current work -still in progress- at IRIT on an architecture enabling an avatar and a human to communicate through sign language with heavy use of the context.
