With the wide-scale adoption of speech-based applications, the research community has started focusing on ways to improve naturalness and expressiveness of human-machine interactions. Among the directions pursued, the study of paralinguistic phenomena in conversation plays an important role. This project proposes to investigate conversational laughter, both from a fundamental research perspective as well as from an application viewpoint. The addressed research question concerns the context in which social laughter occurs, in particular the use of acoustic-prosodic cues in marking it. The findings of this investigation will directly feed into a spoken dialogue system, with the aim of increasing its perceived naturalness. In a first step, phrase- and turn-level analyses will be performed to identify the range of cues used by speakers to mark the use of laughter in conversation. Next, state-of-the-art signal processing methods combined with prosodic information will be used to automatically detect and segment laughter. This will allow the analysis of a larger number of conversational corpora which would, in turn, improve the generalizability of the results. Finally, a laughter-enhanced dialogue system will be implemented and its naturalness will be tested through perception experiments. It is expected that the laughter-enhanced system will be perceived more natural and that documented gender differences found in the production of laughter will be found also in its perception.
Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "HA-HA" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
