  • Llorach, Gerard; Agenjo, Javier; Blat, Josep; Sayago Barrantes, Sergio (Springer, 2019)
    Within Human-Computer Interaction, there has recently been an important turn to embodied and voice-based interaction. In this chapter, we discuss our ongoing research on building online Embodied Conversational Agents (ECAs), ...
  • Serra, Xavier (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 1997)
    When generating musical sound on a digital computer, it is important to have a good model whose parameters provide a rich source of meaningful sound transformations. Three basic model types are in prevalent use today for ...
  • Duran Cals, Jordi; Villarejo, Luis; Farrús, Mireia; Ortiz, Sergio; Ramírez, Gemma (Springer, 2013)
    The Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (Open University of Catalonia, UOC), is a public university based in Barcelona. The UOC is characterised by three main factors: (a) it is a virtual university based in an e-Learning ...

    In this chapter, we provide an overview of state-of-the-art algorithms for the automatic description of music audio signals, both from a low-level perspective (focusing on signal characteristics) and a more musical perspective ...
  • Serra, Xavier (1989)
    This dissertation introduces a new analysis/synthesis method. It is designed to obtain musically useful intermediate representations for sound transformations. The method’s underlying model assumes that a sound is composed ...
  • Serra, Xavier; Leman, Marc; Widmer, Gerhard (The S2S Consortium, 2007)
    Music is an important aspect of all human cultures. Music is meant to give new experiences, to give sense and meaning to life, to console and to promote social coherence and personal identity in and across very diverse ...
  • Amatriain, Xavier; Bonada, Jordi, 1973-; Loscos, Àlex; Serra, Xavier (John Wiley & Sons, 2002)
    In the context of this book, we are looking for representations of sound signals and signal processing systems that can give us ways to design sound transformations in a variety of music applications and contexts. It should ...
  • Deco, Gustavo; Jirsa, Viktor K.; Friston, Karl (MIT Press, 2012)
    Global network dynamics over distributed brain areas emerge from the local dynamics of each brain area. Conversely, global dynamics constrain local activity such that the whole system becomes self-organizing. The implicit ...

    E-learning environments designed for computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) mediate social interactions as key activators of learning). However, free collaboration does not necessarily by itself produce the ...
  • Bertalmío, Marcelo (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2014)
    Image Processing for Cinema presents a detailed overview of image processing techniques that are used in practice in digital cinema. The book shows how image processing has become ubiquitous in movie-making, from shooting ...
