The goal of this study is to be able to automatically predict the presence of anxiety in recorded speech (from both audio and visual recordings). In this study, you will begin by filling out an online survey. The survey will ask you for basic demographic information, and to list the two events in your life that you consider the most anxiety-producing, and the two events in your life that you consider the most happiness-producing. You’ll also be asked to fill out two questionnaires that assess your general level of anxiety. After you complete the online survey, we will contact you with further instructions for participation in an in-person study, during which time we will take physiological measurements, including heartbeat, muscle tension and skin conductance.
Participants receive monetary compensation, but there is no other direct benefit to participants. However, your participation in this research has the potential to help people with excessive anxiety monitor and improve their condition.
