Speech analysis and Conversation Intelligence

The field of speech analysis and conversation Intelligence examines the way speakers deliver their message, project their identity and their social background. Our project focuses on tracing the dynamics and power relations in two-party interactions as realized by their linguist, prosodic and acoustic footprints. We process large scale spoken conversations, synergistically integrate techniques from the fields of speech analytics and discourse studies, and develop novel methodologies for the study of conversations.
