Software better than humans at guessing how you feel from speech
« on: November 15, 2015, 03:49:01 PM »
The software recognises emotions on the fly without having to record any of the speech.The system’s only output is the emotions it identifies ‐ levels of happiness, sadness, anger, disgust and fear, or neutrality.
The software, developed by Rochester graduate students Na Yang and Emre Eskimez, is not the first to recognise the feelings behind human utterances, but it is the first to outstrip humans in a robust comparison. When classifying 700 audio samples, the system got their emotional sense right 72 per cent of the time
