  • Publication number: 20200134337
    Abstract: An emotion estimation apparatus includes a recording section that records one or more events that cause a change in an emotion of a person and prediction information for predicting, for each event, an occurrence of the event; an event predicting section that predicts the occurrence of the event, based on detection of the prediction information; and a frequency setting section that sets a frequency with which an estimation of the emotion is performed. If the occurrence of the event is predicted by the event predicting section, the frequency setting section sets the frequency to be higher than in a case where the occurrence of the event is not predicted, and also sets the frequency based on the content of the event.
