Social support in online mental health communities (OMHCs) is an effective and accessible way of managing mental wellbeing. In this process, sharing emotional supports is considered crucial to the thriving social supports in OMHCs, yet often difficult for both seekers and providers. To support empathetic interactions, we design an AI-infused workflow that allows users to write emotional supporting messages to other users' posts based on the elicitation of the seeker's emotion and contextual keywords from writing. Based on a preliminary user study (N = 10), we identified that the system helped seekers to clarify emotion and describe text concretely while writing a post. Providers could also learn how to react empathetically to the post. Based on these results, we suggest design implications for our proposed system.
Recently, deep learning based single image reflection separation methods have been exploited widely. To benefit the learning approach, a large number of training image pairs (i.e., with and without reflections) were synthesized in various ways, yet they are away from a physically-based direction. In this paper, physically based rendering is used for faithfully synthesizing the required training images, and corresponding network structure is proposed. We utilize existing image data to estimate mesh, then physically simulate the depth-dependent light transportation between mesh, glass, and lens with path tracing. For guiding the separation better, we additionally consider a module of removing complicated ghosting and blurring glass-effects, which allows obtaining priori information before having the glass distortion. This module is easily accommodated within our approach, since that prior information can be physically generated by our rendering process. The proposed method considering the priori information as well as the existing posterior information is validated with various real reflection images, and is demonstrated to show visually pleasant and numerically better results compared to the state-of-theart techniques.
