  1. 1. Sound perception and design in multimodal environments

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : PerMagnus Lindborg; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; sound; perception; design; multimodal; environment; soundscape; music; listening; crossmodal; psychoacoustics; psychophysiology; personality trait; emotion; appraisal; aesthetics; colour; correlation; regression; classification; sonification; Speech and Music Communication; Tal- och musikkommunikation;

    Abstract : This dissertation is about sound in context. Since sensory processing is inherently multimodal, research in sound is necessarily multidisciplinary. The present work has been guided by principles of systematicity, ecological validity, complementarity of  methods, and integration of science and art. READ MORE

  2. 2. Bringing the avatar to life Studies and developments in facial communication for virtual agents and robots

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Samer Al Moubayed; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Avatar; Speech Communication; Facial animation; Nonverbal; Social; Robot; Human-like; Face-to-face; Prosody; Pitch; Prominence; Furhat; Gaze; Head-pose; Dialogue; Interaction; Multimodal; Multiparty; SRA - ICT; SRA - Informations- och kommunikationsteknik;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis comes in pursuit of the ultimate goal of building spoken and embodied human-like interfaces that are able to interact with humans under human terms. Such interfaces need to employ the subtle, rich and multidimensional signals of communicative and social value that complement the stream of words – signals humans typically use when interacting with each other.

  3. 3. Developing Multimodal Spoken Dialogue Systems Empirical Studies of Spoken Human–Computer Interaction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Joakim Gustafson; KTH.; [2002]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Spoken dialogue system; multimodal; speech; GUI; animated agents; embodied conversational characters; talking heads; empirical user studies; speech corpora; system evaluation; system development; Wizard of Oz simulations; system architecture; linguis; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis presents work done during the last ten years on developing five multimodal spoken dialogue systems, and the empirical user studies that have been conducted with them. The dialogue systems have been multimodal, giving information both verbally with animated talking characters and graphically on maps and in text tables. READ MORE

  4. 4. Eyes on multimodal interaction

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University

    Author : Pernilla Qvarfordt; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Advances in technology are making it possible for users to interact with computers by various modalities, often through speech and gesture. Such multimodal interaction is attractive because it mimics the patterns and skills in natural human-human communication. To date, research in this area has primarily focused on giving commands to computers. READ MORE

  5. 5. Planning and Sequencing Through Multimodal Interaction for Robot Programming

    University dissertation from Västerås : Mälardalen University

    Author : Batu Akan; Mälardalens högskola.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; human robot interaction; industrial robots; planning; multimodal interaction; Computer Science; datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Over the past few decades the use of industrial robots has increased the efficiency as well as the competitiveness of several sectors. Despite this fact, in many cases robot automation investments are considered to be technically challenging. In addition, for most small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) this process is associated with high costs. READ MORE
