ChaLearn Looking at People Workshop on Automatic Personality Analysis and
First Impressions Challenge @ ECCV2016
First impressions challenge
Description & data
As part of the speeds interviews project, we are organizing a challenge on “first impressions”, in which participants will develop solutions for recognizing personality traits of users in short video sequences. We are making available a large newly collected data set sponsored by Microsoft of at least 10,000 15-second videos collected from YouTube, annotated with personality traits by AMT workers.
Table 1. Sample videos that will be used for the first impression challenge.
The traits to be recognized will correspond to the “big five” personality traits used in psychology and well known of hiring managers using standardized personality profiling: Extroversion, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, Neuroticism, and Openness to experience.
As is known, the first impression made is highly important in many contexts, such as human resourcing or job interviews. This work could become very relevant to training young people to present themselves better by changing their behavior in simple ways. The participants who obtain the best results in the challenge will be invited to submit a paper to the workshop.
