Lab Introduction

The Multimedia Human-Machine Communication (MHMC) Lab at National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan, was founded in 1997 and led by Prof. Chung-Hsien Wu. The mission of the MHMC Lab is to advance the state-of-the-art technology in multimedia, especially speech, language and Video signals for Human-Machine Communication. The research areas in MHMC Lab include
1. Multilingual speech recognition
2. Emotion recognition of speech, text and facial expression
3. Personalized speech synthesis
4. Mobil-based chatting system
5. Computer Assisted Speech/Sign Language Learning for the Speech-Hearing Impaired

MHMC Lab is the co-organizer of 2010 ISCSLP and APSIPA ASC 2013.
