Towards an Annotation Scheme for Complex Laughter in Speech Corpora

Khiet P. Truong, Jürgen Trouvain, Michel-Pierre Jansen
2019 Interspeech 2019  
We present a first attempt towards an annotation scheme that contributes to improving the homogeneity and transparency with which laughter is annotated.  ...  Annotating laughter becomes more complex when the situation in which laughter occurs becomes more spontaneous and social.  ...  In this paper, we will present our first attempt towards an annotation scheme of laughter, a set of guidelines that aims to achieve laughter annotations that are obtained in a more homogeneous way.  ...

Just Talking - Modelling Casual Conversation

Emer Gilmartin, Christian Saam, Carl Vogel, Nick Campbell, Vincent Wade
2018 Proceedings of the 19th Annual SIGdial Meeting on Discourse and Dialogue  
Such talk is ubiquitous and its structure differs from that found in the task-based interactions that have been the focus of dialogue system design for many years.  ...  It is unlikely that such conversations can be modelled as an extension of task-based talk.  ...  Acknowledgments This work is supported by the European Coordinated Research on Long-term Challenges in Information and Communication Sciences and Technologies ERA-NET (CHISTERA) JOKER project, JOKe and  ...

2018 2018 13th IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face & Gesture Recognition (FG 2018)  
An annotation scheme dedicated to the labeling of verbal and non-verbal behavior have been designed. From our experiment, engagement in HRI should be multifaceted.  ...  Four different systems designed to explore essential and complementary aspects of the JOKER system in terms of paralinguistic/linguistic inputs were used for the data collection.  ...  The ELAN annotation tool 1 was used as it allows for complex and multilayer annotation for video and audio data. The annotation schema is multi-layers.  ...

Applying Cooperative Machine Learning to Speed Up the Annotation of Social Signals in Large Multi-modal Corpora [article]

Johannes Wagner, Tobias Baur, Yue Zhang, Michel F. Valstar, Björn Schuller, Elisabeth André
2018 arXiv   pre-print
For the involved annotators this defines an exhausting and time-consuming task. In the article at hand we present a novel method and also provide the tools to speed up the coding procedure.  ...  A typical work-flow includes the manual annotation (also called coding) of social signals in multi-modal corpora of considerable size.  ...  An annotation is linked to an annotator, an annotation scheme, a role and a session.  ...

2003 2003 International Conference on Multimedia and Expo. ICME '03. Proceedings (Cat. No.03TH8698)  
In contrast to research carried out with artificial data with simulated emotions, for real-life corpora the set of appropriate emotion labels must be determined.  ...  Our aims are to define appropriate emotions for call center services, to annotate the dialogs and to validate the presence of emotions via perceptual tests and to find robust cues for emotion detection  ...  CORPUS AND EMOTION ANNOTATION A corpus of 100 agent-client dialogs (4 agents) in French has been orthographically transcribed and annotated at mul- An annotation scheme has been developed with the assumption  ...

2021 Research in Corpus Linguistics  
This article aims to describe key challenges of preparing and releasing audio material for spoken data and to propose solutions to these challenges.  ...  First, audio-to-text alignment was solved through the insertion of timestamps in front of speaker turns in the transcription stage, which, as we show in the article, may later be used as a valuable complement  ...  and annotations of basic spoken features such as pauses, overlapping speech, nonverbal vocalisations (e.g., laughter), etc.  ...
