Intelligent Voice presents a session on building GPU-powered conversational AI ecosystem in NVIDIA GTC22

Conversational AI applications are comprised of a hierarchy of deep learning natural language processing (NLP) models and speech technologies. Making these many different components work together to realize robust real-world applications a complex, both in terms of model interaction and computing resource orchestration. Deploying NLP models for processing speech requires end-to-end speech recognition, appropriate segmentation, …

A Proposal for Multimodal Emotion Recognition Using Aural Transformers and Action Units on RAVDESS Dataset

Emotion recognition is attracting the attention of the research community due to its multiple applications in different fields, such as medicine or autonomous driving. In this paper, we proposed an automatic emotion recognizer system that consisted of a speech emotion recognizer (SER) and a facial emotion recognizer (FER). For the SER, we evaluated a pre-trained …

Towards versatile conversations with data-driven dialog management and its integration in commercial platforms

Conversational interfaces have recently become a ubiquitous element in both the personal sphere by easing access to services, and industrial environments by the automation of services, improved customer support and its corresponding cost savings. However, designing the dialog model used by these interfaces to decide system responses is still a hard-to-accomplish task for complex conversational …
