      1. iHEARu: Intelligent systems' Holistic Evolving Analysis of Real-life Universal speaker characteristics (#338164)

        FP7 ERC Starting Grant
        Runtime: 01.01.2014 - 31.12.2018
        Role: Principal Investigator and Grant Holder
        Recently, automatic speech and speaker recognition has matured to the degree that it entered the daily lives of thousands of Europe's citizens, e.g., on their smart phones or in call services. During the next years, speech processing technology will move to a new level of social awareness to make interaction more intuitive, speech retrieval more efficient, and lend additional competence to computer-mediated communication and speech-analysis services in the commercial, health, security, and further sectors. To reach this goal, rich speaker traits and states such as age, height, personality and physical and mental state as carried by the tone of the voice and the spoken words must be reliably identified by machines. In the iHEARu project, ground-breaking methodology including novel techniques for multi-task and semi-supervised learning will deliver for the first time intelligent holistic and evolving analysis in real-life condition of universal speaker characteristics which have been considered only in isolation so far. Today's sparseness of annotated realistic speech data will be overcome by large-scale speech and meta-data mining from public sources such as social media, crowd-sourcing for labelling and quality control, and shared semi-automatic annotation. All stages from pre-processing and feature extraction, to the statistical modelling will evolve in "life-long learning" according to new data, by utilising feedback, deep, and evolutionary learning methods. Human-in-the-loop system validation and novel perception studies will analyse the self-organising systems and the relation of automatic signal processing to human interpretation in a previously unseen variety of speaker classification tasks. The project's work plan gives the unique opportunity to transfer current world-leading expertise in this field into a new de-facto standard of speaker characterisation methods and open-source tools ready for tomorrow's challenge of socially aware speech analysis.

        Emotion is a prime example of the complexity of human mind and behaviour, a psychobiological mechanism shaped by language and culture, which has puzzled scholars in the humanities and social sciences over the centuries. In an effort to reconcile conflicting theoretical traditions, we advocate a componential approach which treats event appraisal, motivational shifts, physiological responses, motor expression, and subjective feeling as dynamically interrelated and integrated components during emotion episodes. Using a prediction-generating theoretical model, we will address both production (elicitation and reaction patterns) and perception (observer inference of emotion from expressive cues). Key issues are the cognitive architecture and mental chronometry of appraisal, neurophysiological structures of relevance and valence detection, the emergence of conscious feelings due to the synchronization of brain/body systems, the generating mechanism for motor expression, the dimensionality of affective space, and the role of embodiment and empathy in perceiving and interpreting emotional expressions. Using multiple paradigms in laboratory, game, simulation, virtual reality, and field settings, we will critically test theory-driven hypotheses by examining brain structures and circuits (via neuroimagery), behaviour (via monitoring decisions and actions), psychophysiological responses (via electrographic recording), facial, vocal, and bodily expressions (via micro-coding and image processing), and conscious feeling (via advanced self-report procedures). In this endeavour, we benefit from extensive research experience, access to outstanding infrastructure, advanced analysis and synthesis methods, validated experimental paradigms as well as, most importantly, from the joint competence of an interdisciplinary affective science group involving philosophers, linguists, psychologists, neuroscientists, behavioural economists, anthropologists, and computer scientists.

      7. ASC-INCLUSION: Integrated Internet-Based Environment for Social Inclusion of Children with Autism Spectrum Conditions (#289021)

        EU FP7 STREP
        Runtime: 01.11.2011 - 31.12.2014
        Role: Coordinator, Coauthor Proposal, Project Steering Board Member, Workpackage Leader
        Partners: University of Cambridge, Bar Ilan University, Compedia, University of Genoa, Karolinska Institutet, Autism Europe, TUM, Koc University, Spectrum ASC-Med
        Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC, frequently defined as ASD - Autism Spectrum Disorders) are neurodevelopmental conditions, characterized by social communication difficulties and restricted and repetitive behaviour patterns. Current studies suggest 1% of the population might fit an ASC diagnosis. Alongside their difficulties individuals with ASC tend to have intact and sometimes superior abilities to comprehend and manipulate closed, rule-based, predictable systems, such as computerized environment. Their affinity for the computerized environment has led to several attempts to teach emotion recognition and expression, and social problem solving to individuals with ASC, using computer-based training.
        In the last decade, web applications have been increasingly used for social interaction, forming online communities and social networks. Anecdotal reports of the emergence of online autistic communities, and the use of forums and virtual-worlds, show the great promise the internet holds for better inclusion and social skills training for users/people with ASC. Since intervention into ASC has been shown to be more effective when provided early in life, using the internet as a platform for the support of younger individuals with ASC could significantly promote their social inclusion.
        The project aims to create and evaluate the effectiveness of such an internet-based platform, directed for children with ASC (and other groups like ADHD and socially-neglected children) and those interested in their inclusion. This platform will combine several state-of-the art technologies in one comprehensive virtual world, including analysis of users’ gestures, facial and vocal expressions using standard microphone and webcam, training through games, text communication with peers and smart agents, animation, video and audio clips. User’s environment will be personalized, according to individual profile & sensory requirements, as well as motivational. Carers will be offered their own supportive environment, including professional information, reports of child’s progress and use of the system and forums for parents and therapists.

      11. Kontextsensitive automatische Erkennung spontaner Sprache mit BLSTM-Netzwerken (#SCHU2508-4/1) ("Context-Sensitive Automatic Recognition of Spontaneous Speech by BLSTM Networks"
        Funded by the DFG (German Research Foundation)
        Runtime: 01.03.2011 - 28.02.2014
        Role: Author Proposal, Project Leader
        Trotz zahlreicher Fortschritte im Bereich der automatischen Spracherkennung ist die Erkennungsleistung und Robustheit heutiger Spracherkennungssysteme nicht ausreichend, um als Grundlage für natürliche, spontansprachliche Mensch-Maschine-Interaktion zu dienen. Ziel des Forschungsvorhabens ist es deshalb, die Genauigkeit von Systemen zur Erkennung natürlicher, fließender Sprache mittels neuartiger Mustererkennungsmethoden zu verbessern. Da die Effizienz der menschlichen Spracherkennung vor allem auf der intelligenten Auswertung von Langzeit-Kontextinformation beruht, sollen dabei Ansätze zur Berücksichtigung von Kontext auf Merkmalsebene verfolgt werden. Ausgehend von sogenannten Tandem-Spracherkennern, bei denen neuronale Netze zur Phonemprädiktion in Kombination mit dynamischen Klassifikatoren verwendet werden, sollen hierzu bidirektionale Long Short-Term Memory (BLSTM) Netzwerke eingesetzt werden. Im Gegensatz zu derzeit in Tandem- Systemen verwendeten Phonemschätzern erlaubt es das BLSTM-Prinzip, ein optimales Maß an Kontextinformation bei der Prädiktion miteinzubeziehen. Da jüngste Erfolge im Bereich der kontextsensitiven Phonemerkennung und Schlüsselwortdetektion die Effektivität des BLSTM-Ansatzes unterstreichen, ist eine entsprechende Weiterentwicklung kontinuierlicher Spracherkennungssysteme äußerst vielversprechend.

        Runtime: 01.06.2010 - 31.05.2013
        Role: Author Proposal, Project Leader
        Hauptziel des Forschungsvorhabens ist, die Erkennung von Sprach- und Musiksignalen störrobuster zu gestalten. Besonderes Kennzeichen ist die Integration von Merkmalen, die auf Nichtnegativer Matrix-Faktorisierung (NMF) basieren. NMF – ein Verfahren zur Datenreduktion – erfreut sich in der Signalverarbeitung jüngst zunehmender Popularität. Dabei wird meist ein Spektrogramm in zwei Faktoren zerlegt. Der erste enthält eine spektrale ‘Basis’ des Signals, der zweite die Aktivität der Basisvektoren über die Zeit. In diesem Forschungsvorhaben werden aus dem zweiten Faktor Merkmale gewonnen, die bestehende Architekturen zur Sprach- und Musikverarbeitung ergänzen können. Erste durchgeführte Experimente zur NMF-Merkmalsextraktion für die störrobuste Erkennung gesprochener Buchstabensequenzen im Fahrzeug haben sich dabei konventionellen Verfahren als signifikant überlegen und äußerst vielversprechend erwiesen. Das dabei verwendete Verfahren soll im Rahmen des Projekts durch Weiterentwicklung der NMF verbessert werden und insbesondere für den Einsatz in echtzeitfähigen Spracherkennungssystemen, auch für fließende Sprache, vorbereitet werden. Schließlich sollen die beschriebenen NMF-Merkmale in weiteren Anwendungsfeldern wie Emotionserkennung, Erkennung von nichtlinguistischer Vokalisierung wie Lachen oder Husten in Sprache und Akkorderkennung mit dem Ziel der Steigerung aktueller Erkennungsgüte und der Störrobustheit eingesetzt werden.

        The aim of this project was an audiovisual approach to the recognition of spontaneous human interest. For a most robust estimate, information from four sources was combined for the first time (as reported in the literature) by a synergistic and individual failure tolerant early feature fusion: Firstly, speech is analyzed with respect to acoustic properties based on a high-dimensional prosodic, articulatory, and voice quality feature space plus the linguistic analysis of spoken content by ASR and bag-of-words vector space modeling. Secondly, visual analysis provides patterns of the facial expression by Active Appearance Models, and of the movement activity by eye tracking. Experiments were carried out on a video database of 10.5h of spontaneous human-to-human conversation collected throughout the project. It contains 20+ subjects in gender and age-class balance. Recordings were fulfilled considering diverse comfort and noise conditions. Multiple levels of interest were annotated within a rich transcription. Experiments aimed at person-independent and robust real-life usage and showed the high potential of such a multimodal approach. Benchmark results could further be provided based on transcription versus full automatic processing.

      19. CEICES: Combining Efforts for Improving automatic Classification of Emotional user States
        Reserach Initiative within the EU FP6 Network of Excellence (NoE) HUMAINE
        Runtime: 2005 - 2008
        Role: Invited Research Expert
        Partners: Friedrich Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK, formerly ITC-IRST), Universität Karlsruhe (UKA), Universität Augsburg (UA), LIMSI-CNRS, Tel Aviv University (TAU), Tel Aviv Academic College of Engineering (AFEKA), TUM
        CEICES is a co-operation between several sites dealing with classification of emotional user states conveyed via speech; this initiative was taken within the European Network of Excellence HUMAINE under the name CEICES (Combining Efforts for Improving automatic Classification of Emotional user States). The database used within CEICES is a German corpus with recordings of 51 ten- to thirteen-year old children communicating with Sony's AIBO pet robot. Conceptualization, design and recordings were done at the originator site FAU. The approach to be followed within CEICES looked like this: the originator site provided speech files, phonetic lexicon, manually corrected word segmentation, and manually corrected F0 values, emotional labels, definition of train and test samples, etc. The data was annotated at the word level. All partners committed themselves to share with all the other partners their extracted feature values together with the necessary information (which feature models which acoustic or linguistic phenomenon, format of feature values, classifier used, etc.). Thus each site could assess the features provided by all other sites, together with their own features, aiming at a repertoire of optimal features.

      20. FERMUS: Fehlerrobuste Multimodale Sprachdialoge
        Industry cooperation with BMW, DaimlerChrysler, Siemens, VDO Automotive
        Runtime: 01.03.2000 - 30.06.2003
        Role: Coauthor Proposal, Project Steering, Researcher
        The primary intention of the FERMUS-project was to localize and evaluate various strategies for a dedicated analysis of potential error patterns during human-machine interaction with information and communication systems in upper-class cars. For reaching this goal, we have employed a huge bundle of progressive and mainly recognition-based input modalities, like interfaces for natural speech and dynamic gestural input. Particularly, emotional patterns of the driver have beeen integrated for generating context-adequate dialog structures.

      21. SOMMIA: Speech-oriented Man-Machine-Interface in the Automobile
        Industry Cooperation with SiemensVDO Automotive
        Runtime: 01.06.2000 - 30.09.2001
        Role: Coauthor Proposal, Project Steering, Researcher
        The SOMMIA project focused on the design and evaluation of an ergonomic and generic operation concept for a speech-based MMI integrated in a car MP3-player or in comparable automotive applications. In addition, the system was subject to several economic and geometrical boundary conditions: a two line, 16 characters display with a small set of LEDs and a speaker- independent full word recognizer with 30 to 50 words active vocabulary. Nevertheless, the interface had to meet high technical requirements: its handling should be easy to learn, comfortable and, above all, intuitive and interactively explorable.

        In modernen Fahrzeugen der Luxusklasse, aber durch den ständigen Preisverfall bereits in Mittelklassefahrzeugen, koexistieren zahlreiche elektronische Geräte zur Steigerung des Komforts. Einige Beispiele hierfür sind: Klimaanlage, Navigations- und Telematiksysteme, Audiokomponenten wie CD-Wechsler und Radio, Funktelefon, Bordcomputer und vieles mehr. Da die meisten dieser Komponenten in irgendeiner Weise computerbasiert sind, kann man sich viele Funktionen ausdenken und diese implementieren. Spendiert man jeder dieser Funktionen einen eigenen mechanischen Schalter würde die Anzahl dieser Bedienelemente in der Größenordnung von grossen Konzertorgeln oder Studiomischpulten liegen, nur eben auf der kleinen Fläche im Fahrzeugcockpit. Werden nun die Geräte von verschiedenen Herstellern geliefert, sieht jedes anders aus und besitzt eine firmenspezifische Bedienlogik. Fazit: Trotz aller Funktionalität wird die Flut an Technik unbedienbar. Natürlich haben die Fahrzeughersteller schon längst reagiert und multifunktionale Schnittstellen mit Display und wenigen Bedienelementen entwickelt, wobei die eigentlichen Geräte räumlich über das Fahrzeug verteilt sind und über ein Bussystem mit der Bedieneinheit kommunizieren. Allerdings ergibt sich nun das nächste Problem: Wie gestaltet man eine solche Bedieneinheit, wie kann man Sprache, Akustik und Gesten integrieren und wie erleichtert man dem Fahrer den Umgang mit all der Technik. Hier kommen wir ins Spiel. Für unsere Forschungen steht uns ein speziell eingerichter Fahrssimulator zur Verfügung, der uns Usability-Versuche mit Fahrzeugbedienungen gestattet. Hierbei wird ein MMI (Man-Machine-Interface) durch einen Rechner simuliert. Durch Wizard-of-Oz Versuche können wir in einer Art Rapid Prototyping neue Techniken ausprobieren, indem ein "Wizard" die Versuchspersonen beobachtet und im Hintergrund den Versuchsrechner bedient. Die Versuchsperson bekommt dadurch den Eindruck, tatsächlich mit einer Geste oder einem Satz Aktionen zu bewirken. Erweisen sich bestimmte Bedienungsmethoden als vorteilhaft können diese tatsächlich umgesetzt werden und beispielsweise auf dem Lehrstuhlnetzwerk realisiert werden. Diese Vorgehensweise erscheint zunächst seltsam, hat sich aber als absolut effektiv bewährt.
