Content of research

Intelligence of machines, e.g., to talk with humans, is still under development. To realize human-friendly and helpful robots, the spoken dialogue function is indispensable. We study basic technologies on spoken dialogue systems, such as acoustic signal processing, natural language processing, machine learning, knowledge representation and so on, across the wide variety of layers from acoustic signal processing to social interaction.

Current Research Programs

  • 1. Multimodal active-listening dialogue systems adaptive to situations and users
    2. Inferernce and understanding based on generalization of knowledge graphs
    3. Domain knowledge acquisition through dialogues
    4. Sound source localization based on deep neural networks
    5. Natural language processing using embeddings of large-scale knowledge graphs
