L.A.R.C.S. Research


The activities of the lab are interdisciplinary and involve three major projects:

1) Implementation of the STEMMA model as a multi-lingual semio-syntactic parser, to be used as a component of the text-processing module of a speech synthesizer to predict prosodic contours for synthetic speech (see Speech Prosody 2008 Conference session under: Events).

2) Investigate systematic association of elementary prosodic contours to stemmatic components across languages (in collaboration with the Case Speech Production Lab).

3) Realization of a robot capable of navigating through the world, with an internal representation of its world, able to identify a limited number of action schemas in the world (see Cognitive Robotics Lab).
