  • ANR PRCE μDialBot January 7th, 2021ANR PRCE μDialBot
    In µDialBot our ambition is to actively incorporate human-behavior cues in spoken human-robot communication. We intend to reach a new level in the exploitation of the rich information available with audio and visual data flowing from humans when interacting with robots. In particular, extracting highly informative verbal and non-verbal perceptive features will enhance the robot’s ...
