About the Authors
  • Bringing together experts in multimodal signal processing, this book provides a detailed introduction to the area, with a focus on the analysis, recognition and interpretation of human communication. The technology described has powerful applications. For instance, automatic analysis of the outputs of cameras and microphones in a meeting can make sense of what is happening – who spoke, what they said, whether there was an active discussion and who was dominant in it. These analyses are layered to move from basic interpretations of the signals to richer semantic information. The book covers the necessary analyses in a tutorial manner, going from basic ideas to recent research results. It includes chapters on advanced speech processing and computer vision technologies, language understanding, interaction modeling and abstraction, as well as meeting support technology. This guide connects fundamental research with a wide range of prototype applications to support and analyze group interactions in meetings.

    • A comprehensive reference on a broad range of approaches to mono- and multimodal signal processing, focusing on multimodal meeting capture, analysis and access for applications to human interactions in meetings and meeting support technology
    • Ensures homogeneity of vision and meaningful relations between chapters by being grounded in the experience of a large research consortium, with external contributions
    • Uses a tutorial style to move from basic ideas to recent research, providing directly applicable methods and metrics along with benchmark results
