Annotation: Výskum bude zameraný na rozpoznávanie emócií v reči a na syntézu emotívne zafarbenej reči. Robotická hlava FURHAT umožňuje premietaním animovaného obrazu na tienidlo v tvare ľudskej tváre vytvárať ilúziu hovoriacej ľudskej hlavy. Poskytuje možnosť využitia expresívnych výrazov tváre pre vyjadrenie emócií, ako aj vstupné a výstupné zvukové zariadenia. Študent na základe prehľadu o stave výskumu emócií v reči vo svete zadefinuje emócie, ktoré má byť asistent schopný predstavovať a s použitím hlavy FURHAT, ako aj rozpoznávača reči a expresívneho syntetizátora reči, vyvinutých na UI SAV, navrhne a vyvinie vstupno-výstupné zariadenie expresívneho hlasového asistenta v slovenčine.
Annotation in English: Research will focus on recognizing emotions in speech and on the synthesis of expressive speech.The FURHAT Robotic Head uses animated image on a human-face-like screen to create the illusion of a talking human head. It provides the ability to use expressive facial expressions as well asi t is equipped with input and output audio devices. The student will give an overview of the state of the art in expressive speech research. He will define the emotions that an assistant should be able to represent and, using the FURHAT head, as well as speech speech synthesizer and recognizer developed on UI SAV, he will create an I/O for the expressive speech assistant in Slovak.
