Wonderfully insightful summary of the various research and findings in using speech systems to enable humans and technology to communicate with each other. I read it for a research into speech systems and how to approach designing such a system. Most helpful was having a design approach next to the slightly more regular engineering approach.

The book talks about different aspects of designing computer voice interfaces, particularly on speech output, using human and social points of view.

One of the main points of the book is that even though the brain consciously knows one is interacting with a synthesized voice by a computer, other parts of the brain subconsciously treat the conversation as if one is interacting with a human.

The book discusses different design decisions in voice interface, e. While the book itself is an easy read, the research was described in quite details that it would benefit those who want to learn how to design future research in this area. The book is organized with each chapter discussing a design issue and ended with a conclusion in the last chapter. If you only have time for one chapter, you would gain some insights by reading the last chapter. So is the consistency between the voice emotion and the content. Sep 09, Alexander added it. Information on experiments done in the area of voice human-computer interactions.
Nov 18, Petr rated it it was amazing Shelves: hard-science , psychology. A really good overview of voice human-computer interaction and with a great deal of nice experiments showing how easy it is to trick people.

Cambridge, UK: Polity Press. Collaboratively design a voice interface. This may 'only' be a paper prototype, depending on the skill set of the class members, though a working VoxML prototype would be nice. It will involve.

Please do not miss this : everybody in the group must submit an assessment memo assigning a percentage grade for their contributions to every one else in the group, along with at least one hundred words justifying that grade. Course Participation. Please keep in mind that this is a seminar: you are expected to take an active role in the development of the course.
In particular, think reflectively about all the readings and assignments, and think publicly. Merit will be awarded primarily on the quality of participation: asking relevant questions; making relevant observations; complementing or advancing someone else's contribution; and generally being a constructive rhetor and interlocutor. Quantity of participation is a positive factor to the extent that more quality contributions are preferable to fewer quality contributions, but talking for the sake of talking is not generally a good idea.
Demerit will be assessed reluctantly, and only on the basis of repeated instances. You also get credit for blogging, according to the following scheme:.

They should be submitted by PM on the Wednesday before the class, beginning 10 May. Everyone is expected to read all the blogs before coming to class. The blogs are your chance to briefly go off half cocked about anything you like that relates to the three themes of machines, conversation, and interface design, keyed to the readings.
Again, these assignments will not be graded, simply collected and tallied, though I will always read them with interest, and may occasionally write responses to them. Small assignments.
