This paper presents work in progress on the automatic detection of prosodic prominence in continuous speech. Prosodic prominence involves two different phonetic features: pitch accents, connected with fundamental frequency (F0) movements and syllable overall energy, and stress, which exhibits a strong correlation with syllable nuclei duration and(More)

PoSTWITA contributes to the advancement of the state-of-the-art for Italian language by: (a) enriching the community with a previously not(More)
Extending quantum communication to Space environments would enable to perform fundamental experiments on quantum physics as well as applications of quantum information at planetary and interplanetary scales. Here, we report the first experimental implementation of a scheme for single-photon exchange between a satellite and an Earth-based station. We built(More)
A corpus of written Italian – CORIS – has been under construction at the Centre for Theoretical and Applied Linguistics of Bologna University (CILTA) since 1998 and will soon be completed and made available on-line. The project aims at creating a representative and sizeable general reference corpus of contemporary Italian designed to be easily accessible(More)
