As automatic emotion recognition based on speech matures, new challenges can be faced. We therefore address the major aspects in view of potential applications in the ¿eld, to benchmark today's emotion recognition systems and bridge the gap between commercial interest and current performances: acted vs. spontaneous speech, realistic emotions, noise and(More)
Cleft lip and palate (CLP) may cause functional limitations even after adequate surgical and non-surgical treatment, speech disorder being one of them. Until now, an automatic, objective means to determine and quantify the intelligibility did not exist. We have created an automatic evaluation system that assesses speech, based on the result of an automatic(More)
Cleft lip and palate (CLP) may cause functional limitations even after adequate surgical and non-surgical treatment , speech disorder being one of them. Until now, an objective means to determine and quantify the intelligibility does not exist. An automatic speech recognition system was applied to 31 recordings of CLP children who spoke a Ger-man standard(More)
We present a novel machine learning-based system for unstained cell detection in bright-field microscope images. The system is fully automatic since it requires no manual parameter tuning. It is also highly invariant with respect to illumination conditions and to the size and orientation of cells. Images from two adherent cell lines and one suspension cell(More)
Speech of children with cleft lip and palate (CLP) is sometimes still disordered even after adequate surgical and nonsurgical therapies. Such speech shows complex articulation disorders, which are usually assessed perceptually, consuming time and manpower. Hence, there is a need for an easy to apply and reliable automatic method. To create a reference for(More)

OBJECTIVE Cleft lip and palate (CLP) may cause functional limitations even after adequate surgical and non-surgical treatment, speech disorders being one of them. Interindividually, they vary a lot, showing typical articulation specifics such as nasal emission and shift of articulation and therefore a diminished intelligibility. Until now, an objective(More)
