Wednesday 05/07/2008 was the second day of the student project presentations, and the day of prosody. The session chair was Yuanli Wang. He did a nice job with power point presentation so we would all know who is presenting. Here’s Yuanli’s picture.
I had the honor of breaking the ice today. My presentation was on prosody in HCI. I tried to describe human voice in HCI with pitch and power variances. Here’s picture of me in action.
Jeremy Kent analyzed prosody of emotions in R2D2’s voice. It seems that R2D2 has feelings, so if you run into him be careful how you talk to him. Here’s Jeremy giving us some details about R2D2’s voice.
After Jeremy, Mike Farrar presented. We had a similar topic. Mike was analyzing voice recorded on PDAs. He extracted a lot of data and gave a very informative presentation. Nice job Mike!
Another member of CATlab was presenting on Wednesday. Jon Oppelaar was analyzing speech for map task (one person explaining directions to another person – map task).
Another post about the presentations is coming this Friday 05/09/2008. All pictures from the presentations can be found here.
Have a good one,
