QUESTIONS ON entertAIn family?
FIND ANSWERS IN OUR FAQ
How many emotions can entertAIn play distinguish ?
The emotions are categorized based on latest psychological models. In this models, we have an emotional space based on “pleasantness, urgency, dominance”. From these core dimensions, all other states can be identified. entertAIn play model distinguishes between six different core emotions which are most common for the game industry.

- Dimensions with confidence level:
- Dominance (Control)
Mixture of these numbers can result in identifying any emotional state.
For example, high urgency, low pleasantness and low control means fear.
Which microphone quality is needed for entertAIn play?
audEERING’s technology has been tested on a variety of embedded microphones and headsets. As a rule-of-thumb, the better the quality and lower the noise, the higher the accuracy. The ADC sampling rate should be at least 16 kHz, with min. depth 8-bit (u-law). The processing of audio captured via remote wireless microphones is also possible.
How long must an audio sample be for emotion detection?
From a technical perspective, the model is returning the result in real-time (every frame). The longer the audio received by the emotion model, the higher is the accuracy of the result. Very long utterances, however, balance themselves out, as the emotional reaction of a human does not last infinite.
In practice, the return interval should be at least half a second for reliable emotion detection, and no longer than 12 seconds. This can be totally adjusted to the scenario in the game. Another practice is to get the values in short 1 second intervals and sum them up to see if they reach a threshold.
How can I test entertAIn play?
