  "abstract": "<p>We present <strong>BIRAFFE</strong>, a dataset consisting of <em><strong>electrocardiogram (ECG)</strong></em>, <em><strong>galvanic skin reaction (GSR)</strong></em> and changes in <em><strong>facial expression</strong></em> signals recorded during affect elicitation by means of <em><strong>audio-visual stimuli</strong></em> (from IADS and IAPS databases) and&nbsp;our two proof-of-concept <em><strong>affective games</strong></em> (&quot;Affective SpaceShooter 2&quot; and &quot;Fred Me Out 2&quot;). All the signals were captured using portable and low-cost equipment: BITalino (r)evolution kit for ECG and GSR, and Creative Live! web camera for face photos (further analyzed by MS Face API).&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>Besides the signals, the dataset consists also of <em><strong>subjects&#39; self-assessment</strong></em> of their affective state after each stimuli (with the use of two widgets: the first one with <em><strong>5 emoticons</strong></em> and the second with <em><strong>valence and arousal</strong></em> dimensions) and <em><strong>&quot;Big Five&quot; personality traits</strong></em> assessment (using NEO-FFI inventory).</p>\n\n<p>For detailed description see <em>BIRAFFE-AfCAI2019-paper.pdf</em>.<br>\nFor preview of the files before downloading the whole dataset see <em>sample-SUB1107-[...]</em>&nbsp;files.</p>\n\n<p>All documents and papers that report on research that uses the BIRAFFE dataset should acknowledge this by <strong>citing the paper</strong>:<br>\nKutt, K., Dr\u0105\u017cyk, D., Jemio\u0142o, P., Bobek, S., Gi\u017cycka, B., Rodriguez-Fernandez, V., &amp; Nalepa, G.
