New course!

In the Fall 2009 semester, the Computer Science department will be offering a new course on speech processing.

CS 6998: Topics in Speech Processing: Computational Approaches to Emotional Speech

This course introduces students to research on emotional speech. We will explore state-of-the-art work on recognizing and producing classic emotions automatically. Emotions such as anger, happiness, sadness, and uncertainty are important to recognize in online dialogue systems and to produce in computer games. We will also study the recognition of other types of speaker state, including deceptive and charismatic speech, and the uses of acoustic and prosodic information in medical domains, for the diagnosis of mental and physical disabilities. Classes will be lecture and discussion with an emphasis on group participation. There are no prerequisites for the course.
