University of Utrecht researcher Itir Onal Ertugrul, University of Miami researchers Yeojin Amy Ahn and Daniel Messinger along with others published a study on automated facial action recognition in infants – which focuses on training Action Unit detectors.
Interaction with unfamiliar partners is a component of social life from infancy onward. Yet little is known about preverbal communication with strangers. This study compared the development of infant communication with strangers to communication with mothers and fathers and examined the contribution of temperament to partner-specific communication patterns.

Daniel Messinger, Lynn Perry, et al. contributed to the book series “Advances in Child Development Behavior,” Volume 62 “New Methods and Approaches for Studying Child Development,” Chapter 7 “Computational Approaches to Understanding Interaction and Development,” which focuses on vocal interaction and development in children.
Simulating COVID19 Transmission From Observed Movement: An Agent-Based Model of Classroom Dispersion
A team of University of Miami researchers has put together an extensive study simulating the spread of COVID-19 based on observed movement using RIFD systems and modeled on classroom dispersion.
Children with hearing loss often attend inclusive preschool classrooms aimed at improving their spoken language skills. Although preschool classrooms are fertile environments for vocal interaction with peers, little is known about the dyadic processes that influence children’s speech to one another and foster their language abilities and how these processes may vary in children with hearing loss. A team of researchers from the University of Miami used new objective measurement approaches to identify and quantify children’s vocalizations during social contact, as determined by children’s proximity and mutual orientation.
