Join us for our podcast on expressive vocalizations and machine learning, where we discuss the powerful, contagious non-word utterances like yelps, laughs, and sighs that play a critical role in our social and emotional lives and provide new channels for human-computer interaction. Our guests include Hume AI CEO Dr. Alan Cowen, Creative Destruction Lab and DeepMind research scientist Dr. Kory Mathewson, Dr. Gauthier Gidel, professor at the Université de Montréal and Mila faculty member, and Hume AI Research Scientists Dr. Panagiotis Tzirakis and Alice Baird.
Hume AI is proud to co-organize ICML's Expressive Vocalization (ExVo) Workshop and Competition. Bringing together leading emotion scientists and AI researchers, ExVo explores the machine learning problem of understanding and generating vocal bursts—a wide range of expressive nonverbal vocalizations such as laughs, sighs, grunts, cries, screams, oohs, ahhs, and huhs (to name but a few). The challenge is co-sponsored by Hume AI, Mila, and the National Film Board of Canada.
