Using a sparse graph representation allows the agent to examine a small number of agents at a time, without having to section oﬀ agents or recompute calculations at every frame. Fc = −β < γ < β (1) Fc = dist(agents) < r (2) The data from this sparse graph contains a list of emotions and channels, and each agent can request the list built for them from the crowd manager. By using a crowd manager to maintain the sparse graph, the number of computations are decreased by the number of reﬂexive channels.
The Muses of Poetry  is an interactive installation where animated characters transmit to an audience the intrinsic emotions conveyed in existent poems (Fig. 2(b)). Emote  is a web based messaging services, which converts plain text messages into animated ones (Fig. 2(c)). The Dynamic Emotion Categorization Test (DECT)  was a psychological computer-based experiment where four human actors and two virtual actors (animated characters) where used to examine the ability of emotion recognition with dynamic physical stimuli in children and teenagers with autism (Fig.
2(d)). Fig. 2. (a) Conference Guide, (b) Muses of Poetry, (c) Emote, (d) DECT, (e) SARA: (1) Original image, (2) Water Color ’Joy’, (3) Sketched ’Joy’ Based on the results achieved with the Agent Framework and the DECT test, SARA - Stylized Animations for Research on Autism intends to take the study of facial recognition in persons with autism to the next level. The goal of SARA is to study how abstraction in animated facial expressions aﬀects their recognition, in comparison to their realistic versions.
