The Speech Interactive Research Group was formed in 1990 as the research group on pattern recognition and speech technology of the University of the Basque Country. Its central focus has been for a long time the development of techniques for automatic speech recognition, understanding and translation based on learning methods. We have also been involved in the development of spoken dialog systems, where we aimed at developing interactive interfaces adapted to the task and to the user as well as at learning from human interaction. We now also investigate the emotional aspects of interaction, focusing on the emotion detection from the analysis of speech signal as well as from the dialogic language in social media. The group has, therefore, a wide experience in both basic research and technology transfer in these areas.
