Speech, Media and Content Technologies


The Department focuses on research, technological development and innovation in the field of analysis, processing, recognition and synthesis of signal and content. Emphasis is put both on individual signals relating to human communication, such as speech, and on multimedia and multimodal content through the study of individual multimodal and multisensory signal and data flows. In this context, a vast range of activities are included, an indicative list of which is the analysis, recognition and synthesis of speech with an emphasis on handling expressive and spontaneous speech, music symbolic processing, image and video processing for information extraction, computer graphics for three-dimensional representation applications, virtual/augmented reality and signal processing with multiple sensors.
