Mihoko Otake, Myagmarbayar Nergui, Seong-eun Moon, Kentaro Takagi, Tsutomu Kamashima, Kazuhiro Nakadai
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this study, we developed a sound source localization system, which consists of Jellyfish-02 and HARK robot audition software, in order to reduce the number of wires for evaluating speech duration.  ...  It is potentially applicable for assisting group conversion by measuring duration of speech for each participant.  ...  In our previous study, we developed a system that assists group conversation of older adults by evaluating speech duration and facial expression of each participant during conversation.  ...

A Real-Time Selective Speaker Cancellation System for Relieving Social Anxiety in Autistics

Weidong Shi, Xi Wang, Xi Zhao, Omprakash Gnawali, Katherine Loveland, Varun Prakash
2013 Proceedings of the ICTs for improving Patients Rehabilitation Research Techniques  
We propose a fully interactive system that allows ASD patient to focus on a single auditory stream (a person's voice) according to their preference during conversations.  ...  The experimental results have demonstrated our prototyping system works reliably in regular conversations.  ...  We use Jeffress model to localize direction of sound source. Jeffress model is a hypothetical model of how neurons in the brain make use of small time differences to localize sound source.  ...
