A growing area of artificial intelligence is the processing of voice and speech. In recent years it is also an essential component in human machine interface as part of applications, IoT products, wearables and robots. A new field called conversational interaction is growing and requires knowledge of voice-activated software. The seminar offers an understanding of how human speech can be processed by computers. The students will be familiarized with modern tools, research and development and innovative technologies that used in the field of speech and voice intelligent processing nowadays. The areas we introduce are: Speech Recognition, Speech Synthesis, Speech Biometrics, Emotion Detection, Speech Analytics, Language Identification, and Conversational Interaction.
