Aim of course

This lecture gives an introduction into Cognitive User Interfaces (CUIs). CUIs mimic or reproduce human behavior in order to enable more natural and robust interaction between man and machine.
The lecture covers underlying algorithms, design questions, possible applications, and evaluation methods for CUIs. The focus lies on speech- and multimodal interfaces.  Training and adaptation methods for hidden-Markov-models are discussed as a main modeling paradigm for CUIs.
The student gets an overview of typical CUIs and their application field and should be able to understand the basic algorithms and designs.

Subject of course

  • Introduction to CUIs
  • Human cognition and perception models for CUIs
  • Hidden-Markov-models (Training, Adaptation, Recognition, Synthesis)
  • Acoustic speech synthesis
  • Acoustic speech recognition
  • Visual speech synthesis
  • Gesture recognition
  • Multimodal and spoken dialog systems

Didactics:

The exercise consists of a theoretical and practical part where we will develop a speech synthesizer. For the practical part you have to work in a group of 3-5 students and record a speaker from the group and train a statistical synthesizer with the recordings and let it talk. The recordings will be made in a professional recording room.
