    • Lexical Dependent Emotion Detection Using Synthetic Speech Reference 

      Lotfian, Reza; Busso, Carlos A. (IEEE-Inst Electrical Electronics Engineers Inc, 2019-02-08)
      This paper aims to create neutral reference models from synthetic speech to contrast the emotional content of a speech signal. Modeling emotional behaviors is a challenging task due to the variability in perceiving and ...
    • Speech-Driven Animation with Meaningful Behaviors 

      Sadoughi, Najmeh; Busso, Carlos (Elsevier B.V., 2019-04-05)
      Conversational agents (CAs) play an important role in human computer interaction (HCI). Creating believable movements for CAs is challenging, since the movements have to be meaningful and natural, reflecting the coupling ...
    • Speech-Driven Expressive Talking Lips with Conditional Sequential Generative Adversarial Networks 

      Sadoughi, Najmeh; Busso, Carlos (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2019-05-07)
      Articulation, emotion, and personality play strong roles in the orofacial movements. To improve the naturalness and expressiveness of virtual agents(VAs), it is important that we carefully model the complex interplay between ...
    • Expressive Speech-Driven Lip Movements with Multitask Learning 

      Sadoughi, Najmeh; Busso, Carlos A.
      The orofacial area conveys a range of information, including speech articulation and emotions. These two factors add constraints to the facial movements, creating non-trivial integrations and interplays. To generate more ...
