"The mobile and ubiquitous nature of conversational social video has placed video blogs among the most popular forms of online video. For this reason, there has been an increasing interest in conducting studies of human behavior from video blogs in affective and social computing. In this context, we consider the problem of mood and personality trait impression inference using verbal and nonverbal audio-visual features. Under a multi-label classification framework, we show that for both mood and personality trait binary label sets, not only the simultaneous inference of multiple labels is feasible, but also that classification accuracy increases moderately for several labels, compared to a single-label approach. The multi-label method we consider naturally exploits label correlations, which motivate our approach, and our results are consistent with models proposed in psychology to define human emotional states and personality. Our approach points to the automatic specification of co-occurring emotional states and personality, by inferring several labels at once, compared to single-label approaches. We also propose a new set of facial features, based on emotion valence from facial expressions, and analyze their suitability in the multi-label framework."
