Mutual gaze detection and estimation: Towards human-robot interaction
- Mutual gaze is an important part of social interaction and the perception of others emotional states and essential for establishing joint attention. It has been described as “the most powerful mode of developing a communicative link between humans”. Although gaze estimation and prediction using machine learning and computer vision is extensively studied in images and videos for automation, there is a lack of research in dialogue and interaction. In this study, we estimate gaze using a PyTorch-based model with the goal of implementing human-like mutual gaze in a robot.
