Welcome to AIS-Lab.

The work of Akagi Lab. is speech signal processing and modeling of the speech perception mechanism of humans. Humans have superior speech recognition ability such as recovery from co-articulation, noisy speech recognition, and normalization of individuality. It is believed that modeling these compensation mechanisms will produce tools applicable to co-articulation recovery or other problems in speech recognition, analysis and synthesis. To construct models which mimic human speech perception ability, not only engineering but also knowledge of physiology and/or psychology are required.
