Annotation: Akustické charakteristiky rečového signálu odrážajú okrem iných informácií aj emočný stav hovoriaceho. Úlohou doktoranda je vytvoriť scenár nahrávania databázy expresívnej reči obsahujúcej prejavy zvýšeného stresu, napríklad pomocou počítačových hier alebo virtuálnej reality. Nazbierané nahrávky spracuje do databázy, a použije na trénovanie systému automatickej detekcie úrovne stresu z reči založeného na metódach strojového učenia. Zadefinuje zmeny akustických charakteristík rečového signálu odrážajúce zmeny hladiny stresu hovoriaceho.
Annotation in English: The acoustic characteristics of the speech signal reflect, among other information, the emotional state of the speaker. The role of the doctoral student is to design a recording method/scenario to record an expressive speech database containing increased stress, for example, using computer game or virtual reality. The collected database will be used to train a stress-level detection system based on machine learning methods. The acoustic cues of stress in the speech signal will be analysed.
