- Course objectives
- The course provides an introduction to speech processing oriented to human-computer interaction, i.e. especially to speech synthesis, speech recognition and dialogue systems. Main objectives can be summarized as follows: To understand the basic principles of sound and speech production and perception; To understand basic principles of speech regognition,synthesis and dialogue systems; To obtain an introductory overview in the field.
