Abstract:
(EN) Provided is an information processing device for processing a conversation by a voice agent. The information processing device is provided with: an acquisition unit for acquiring audio information for an agent device reproduced through interaction with a user, and audio information of another content different from the aforementioned audio information; and a control unit for performing a sound field control process on an audio output signal based on the audio information for the agent device acquired by the acquisition unit. The control unit performs a wavefront synthesis on output audio from a plurality of speakers, controls the sound field of the agent device, and prevents mixing with the other content different from the aforementioned audio information.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de traitement d'informations destiné à traiter une conversation par un agent vocal. Le dispositif de traitement d'informations comporte : une unité d'acquisition pour acquérir des informations audio pour un dispositif d'agent reproduit par interaction avec un utilisateur, et des informations audio d'un autre contenu différent des informations audio susmentionnées; et une unité de commande pour effectuer un processus de commande de champ sonore sur un signal de sortie audio sur la base des informations audio pour le dispositif d'agent acquis par l'unité d'acquisition. L'unité de commande effectue une synthèse de front d'onde sur une sortie audio provenant d'une pluralité de haut-parleurs, commande le champ sonore du dispositif d'agent, et empêche le mélange avec l'autre contenu différent des informations audio susmentionnées.
(JA) 音声エージェントの対話を処理する情報処理装置を提供する。 情報処理装置は、ユーザとのインタラクションを通じて再生されるエージェント機器の音声情報と、前記音声情報とは異なる他のコンテンツの音声情報とを取得する取得部と、前記取得部によって取得された前記エージェント機器の音声情報に基づく音声出力信号に対して音場制御処理を行う制御部を具備する。前記制御部は、複数のスピーカーからの出力音声を波面合成して、前記エージェント機器の音場を制御して、前記音声情報とは異なる他のコンテンツとの混じり合いを回避する。
