Title (EN) OPTIMAL HUMAN-MACHINE CONVERSATIONS USING EMOTION-ENHANCED NATURAL SPEECH
(FR) CONVERSATIONS HOMME-MACHINE OPTIMALES UTILISANT UN DISCOURS NATUREL AMÉLIORÉ GRÂCE À DES ÉMOTIONS UTILISANT DES RÉSEAUX DE NEURONES HIÉRARCHIQUES ET UN APPRENTISSAGE PAR RENFORCEMENT
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method for emotion-enhanced natural speech using dilated convolutional neural networks, wherein an audio processing server receives a raw audio waveform from a dilated convolutional artificial neural network, associates text-based emotion content markers with portions of the raw audio waveform to produce an emotion-enhanced audio waveform, and provides the emotion-enhanced audio waveform to the dilated convolutional artificial neural network for use as a new input data set.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système et un procédé de discours naturel amélioré grâce à des émotions utilisant des réseaux de neurones à convolution dilatée, un serveur de traitement audio recevant une forme d'onde audio brute provenant d'un réseau de neurones artificiels à convolution dilatée, associant des marqueurs de contenu d'émotion à base de texte à des parties de la forme d'onde audio brute pour produire une forme d'onde audio améliorée grâce à des émotions, et fournissant la forme d'onde audio améliorée grâce à des émotions au réseau de neurones artificiels à convolution dilatée pour une utilisation pour servir de nouvel ensemble de données d'entrée.
