GRACE: Computational models for the automated analysis of cohesion in small groups interactions

The project aims at developing computational models of cohesion among humans able to integrate the task and social dimensions of cohesion and also accounting for their relationship and their development over time.

GRACE (Groups’ Analysis for automated Cohesion Estimation) is a fundamental research project funded by the French National Research Agency (ANR) within the frame of its JCJC program (GRACE, project ANR-18-CE33-0003-01). It contributes to the axis 3 “Interaction, Robotique – Intelligence Artificielle” of the challenge 7 “Société de l’information et de la communication”.

Activities in GRACE are carried out at LTCI, Télécom Paris, Institut Polytechnique de Paris by Giovanna Varni, associate professor, Lucien Maman, PhD, et al.

GRACE is a feature of Télécom Paris’ Center for Open Software Innovation (COSI).
