Combining acoustic and articulatory feature information for robust speech recognition
Abstract The idea of using articulatory representations for automatic speech recognition (ASR) continues to attract much attention in the speech community. Representations which are grouped under theExpand

Can Machines Think? Interaction and Perspective Taking with Robots Investigated via fMRI
Background When our PC goes on strike again we tend to curse it as if it were a human being. Why and under which circumstances do we attribute human-like properties to machines? Although humansExpand
