    The development of conversational agents with human interaction capabilities requires advanced affective state recognition integrating non-verbal cues from the different modalities constituting what in human communication ...
  • Domínguez Bajo, Mónica; Farrús, Mireia; Wanner, Leo (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2017)
    This paper presents a demonstration of a stochastic prosody tool for enrichment of synthesized speech using SSML prosody tags applied over hierarchical thematicity spans in the context of a CTS application. The motivation ...
  • Domínguez Bajo, Mónica; Farrús, Mireia; Wanner, Leo (COLING, 2016)
    Speech prosody is known to be central in advanced communication technologies. However, despite the advances of theoretical studies in speech prosody, so far, no large scale prosody annotated resources that would facilitate ...
  • Domínguez Bajo, Mónica; Farrús, Mireia; Wanner, Leo (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2016)
    Intonation is traditionally considered to be the most important prosodic feature, whereupon an important research effort has been devoted to automatic segmentation and labeling of speech samples to grasp intonation cues. ...
  • Domínguez Bajo, Mónica; Burga Díaz, Alicia; Farrús, Mireia; Wanner, Leo (ELRA (European Language Resources Association), 2018)
    Theoretical studies on the Information Structure–prosody interface argue that the content packaged in terms of theme and rheme correlates with the intonation of the corresponding sentence. However, there are few empirical ...
  • Domínguez Bajo, Mónica (Sociedad Española para el Procesamiento del Lenguaje Natural (SEPLN), 2019)
    Tesis doctoral en tecnologías de la información y las comunicaciones realizada por Mónica Domínguez Bajo en la Universidad Pompeu Fabra bajo la dirección del Dr. Leo Wanner y la Dra. Mireia Farrús Cabecerán. El acto de ...
  • Domínguez Bajo, Mónica; Burga Díaz, Alicia; Farrús, Mireia; Wanner, Leo (CEUR Workshop Proceedings, 2018)
    Conversational technologies that assist elderly people need to adapt to common disabilities in old age. Visual, hearing and even more so cognitive impairments pose serious difficulties for our seniors to handle a standard ...
  • Domínguez Bajo, Mónica; Latorre, Iván; Farrús, Mireia; Codina-Filbà, Joan; Wanner, Leo (COLING, 2016)
    This paper presents an implementation of the widely used speech analysis tool Praat as a web application with an extended functionality for feature annotation. In particular, Praat on the Web addresses some of the central ...
  • Domínguez Bajo, Mónica; Farrús, Mireia; Burga Díaz, Alicia; Wanner, Leo (ISCA, 2014)
    Several grammar theories relate information structure and prosody, highlighting a major correspondence between theme and rheme, and intonation patterns. Although these theories have been successfully exploited in some ...
  • Domínguez Bajo, Mónica (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2017-11-17)
    This dissertation presents an empirical study on the information structure– prosody interface based on: (i) a formal description of hierarchical thematicity within a systematic language model for natural language generation ...
  • Domínguez Bajo, Mónica; Burga Díaz, Alicia; Farrús, Mireia; Wanner, Leo (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2018)
    Theoretical studies on the information structure–prosody interface argue that the content packaged in terms of theme and rheme correlates with the intonation of the corresponding sentence as regards to rising and falling ...
