Speech analysis

Our research in speech processing focus on the development of novel nonlinear analysis methods for the characterization and classification of pathological and affective speech. For the latter, classical linear methods do not generally capture the nonlinearity, aperiodicity, turbulence and noise that can be present in pathological voices. We thus aim to design and extract new features that allow better characterization/classification of such voices, while being easy to interpret by clinicians. For the former, recent research have shown that the voice source signal information allow significant improvement of speech emotion detection systems. Our goal is to develop novel nonlinear techniques to extract relevant voice source features and to design efficient machine learning algorithms for robust emotion classification.
