Content of research

Intelligence of machines, e.g., to talk with humans, is still under development, while computation power and robot locomotion have drastically improved. To realize human-friendly and helpful robots, the spoken dialogue function, which human beings have in nature, is indispensable. We study basic technologies on spoken dialogue systems across several layers from acoustic signal processing to social interaction. We have also been involved in the ontology engineering, which organizes human knowledge and describes it in a machine-readable format.

Current Research Topics

  1. 1. Spoken dialogue robots robust against speech recognition errors
  2. 2. Adaptive spoken dialogue system
  3. 3. Knowledge acquisition through dialogues
  4. 4. Ontology engineering and Linked Open Data (LOD)
