AbstractWe present a scenario where a social robot acts as a chess companion for children, and describe our current eff orts towards endowing such robot with empathic capabilities. A multimodal framework for modeling some of the user's affective states that combines visual and task-related features is presented. Further, we describe how the robot selects adaptive empathic responses considering the model of the user's affect.
