:Conversational Technology and Affective Computing for Cognitive DisabilityAbstract:
My research investigates artificial Speech Emotion Recognition both from the semantics and from the pitch of the voice and aims at exploring its application in Conversational Technology to support people with Neurodevelopmental Disorders NDD. NDD is a group of conditions with onset in the developmental period that is characterized by severe deficits in the cognitive, emotional and motor areas. The challenge of the project is to develop datasets, models and algorithms to create Conversational Tools for individuals with NDD to help them enhance communication skills, particularly emotion recognition and expression.
