Since January 2015, Louis-Philippe Morency has been a tenure-track Faculty at CMU Language Technology Institute where he leads the Multimodal Communication and Machine Learning Laboratory (MultiComp Lab). He was previously Research Faculty at USC Computer Science Department. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. His research focuses on building the computational foundations to enable computers with the abilities to analyze, recognize and predict subtle human communicative behaviors during social interactions. He has formalized this new research endeavor with the Human Communication Dynamics framework, addressing four key computational challenges: behavioral dynamic, multimodal dynamic, interpersonal dynamic and societal dynamic. This multi-disciplinary research topic overlaps the fields of multimodal interaction, social psychology, computer vision, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and has many applications in areas as diverse as medicine, robotics and education.
