Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) Recent development in CG technology enables us to synthesize an image of a human face with its facial expressions. It may be a reasonable expectation that people would react to such a CG synthesized face in the same way that they would react to others, since people sometimes react to computers and complex machines, which are not considered to have mind, as if they were interacting with humans. In this study, we examined how the change in the expressions of a CG synthesized face affects one's interpersonal attitudes toward the face. We have obtained two observations from the experiment. When the synthesized face showed a positive expression right after the response from the subjects, the subjects tended to give an answer that would lead to a positive expression by the synthesized face in the subsequent dialogue. On the other hand, if the synthesized face reacted negatively to the subjects' response, the subjects unconsciously tried to avoid further negative responses from the synthesized face. These observations suggest that the subjects inferred the 'mental' state of the synthesized face from its expressions and tried to maintain a friendly relation with it.
