1st prize of the Fraunhofer Portugal Challenge

Former master student Pedro Parreira was awarded with the 1st prize of the Fraunhofer Portugal Challenge 7th Edition (2016)!

The prize rewards scientific research with “practical utility” in Portuguese Universities, namely, research ideas based on MSc and PhD theses. During his Masters in Biomedical Engineering at Instituto Superior Técnico, Pedro Parreira was also a research member at INESC-ID Lisboa where he developed a touchless interface that enabled users to interact with 3D medical images by using their hands as true 3D cursors. The proposed interaction techniques promoted efficient rotation and translation of volume data when compared to traditional systems. Other tools such as tag placement, distance and angle measurement along with rendering the interior of volume data using clipping planes were also considered. The resulting prototype was tested with senior radiologists and surgeons from Hospital Prof. Dr. Fernando Fonseca (E.P.E) which responded positively to the touchless interface. His work resulted from the joint collaboration between IST, INESC-ID Lisboa and Hospital Prof. Dr. Fernando Fonseca (E.P.E).

RFC 7846 protocol

It was recently published the protocol "RFC 7846" from the researchers Mário Serafim Nunes, Rui Cruz and João Pedro Taveira. This RFC specifies the base Peer-to-Peer Streaming Tracker Protocol (PPSTP) version 1, an application-layer control (signaling) protocol for the exchange of meta information between trackers and peers.

The specification outlines the architecture of the protocol and its functionality; it also describes message flows, message processing instructions, message formats, formal syntax, and semantics. The PPSTP enables cooperating peers to form content-streaming overlay networks to support near real-time delivery of structured media content (audio, video, and associated timed text and metadata), such as adaptive multi-rate, layered (scalable), and multi-view (3D) videos in live, time-shifted, and on-demand modes.

2nd DataStorm Big Data Summer School

Following last year’s event, the 2nd DataStorm Big Data Summer School will take place on July 13, 14 and 15, 2015, at the Lisbon campus of Instituto Superior Técnico.

Following last year’s event, the 2nd DataStorm Big Data Summer School will take place on July 13, 14 and 15, at the Lisbon campus of Instituto Superior Técnico. It is aimed at: students, who want to learn more about the challenges and state-of-the-art techniques for Big Data analytics; researchers, who need to analyze and extract patterns from very large sets of experimental data; the industry, where knowing the currently available tools, services, and applications for exploring Big Data is of the essence. The summer school will last three days, each focusing on a different topic. During the first day, attendants will learn what Big Data is, why it is important, and what are its challenges and current solutions. The second day will focus on Textual Data and Social Networks. The third day will be dedicated to Data Visualization. The school will include tutorial presentations, were the fundamentals of Big Data processing will be taught, laboratory sessions, where an hands-on approach will be taken, allowing the attendants to try for themselves a set of programming frameworks for managing large data volumes on a cloud computing environment, and keynote sessions, where leading researchers and data engineers will present the latest developments and applications of Big Data analytics. At the end of the 2nd Lisbon Big Data Summer School, all attendants will have the theoretical know-how and practical experience necessary to start creating Big Data solutions. We expect this knowledge to have a major impact on the way data is transformed into information, and information into action, at schools, research labs, and organizations. For more information, contact info@ds3.inesc-id.pt and visit the Summer School web site at http://ds3.inesc-id.pt.

researcher Ana Paiva @Global Agenda 2014

Prof. Ana Paiva participated in the Summit on the Global Agenda 2014 from the World Economic Forum in Dubai from the 9th until the 12th of November.

During two and a half days, a network of Global Agenda Councils (GAC) held lively discussions, and Prof. Ana Paiva participated in the GAC on Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. As a result of these intensive and stimulating days of work, the UAE (United Arab Emirates) in partnership with the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council (GAC) on Artificial Intelligence and Robotics launched a new council that will “offer advice on the best ways to use robotics and artificial intelligence to improve people’s lives” (see WEF summit closes with UAE launching initiative on Robotics and Artificial Intelligence). The founding members of the Council comprise leading researchers and innovators from the world’s best research institutes, universities, and companies, including Instituto Superior Técnico from the University of Lisbon. “I’m extremely excited with the possibility of collaborating with the UAE to develop a global plan that will encourage research and the public to understand and recognise the positive impact that Artificial Intelligence and Robotics can have in our society”. The council announced as its first initiative, the UAE “Robots for Good” Award, aimed at encouraging research and application of innovative solutions to improve people’s lives, ranging from hardware to software intelligence and artificial agents. Other initiatives of the Council will in the future include educational conferences, the use of robotics in UAE schools and universities, and leading policies on the humanitarian and positive uses of robotics and artificial intelligence.

INESC-ID Distinguished lecture Series

<p>Dr. Paul Bertone, <p>Digital information storage in DNA, <p>September 4th, <p>9:00, IST Congress Center

The amount of information that humans produce and want to store is increasing exponentially. It is estimated that the total digital information on Earth is of the order of zettabytes (thousands of billions of billions of bytes). The amount of digital information that people want to archive, i.e. store safely, recoverably, for long periods of time with only rare access and with minimal ongoing maintenance requirements, is also growing. However, at present essentially no long-term archiving of digital information is taking place. This is because all current digital storage media require a continual cycle of maintenance to renew both the storage medium and the 'reading' and 'writing' hardware. This in turn is because there is no conventional computing storage technology that is trusted to survive more than a few years. Recent genome science-inspired advances in the technologies for reading and writing DNA led us to investigate possibility of using DNA as a digital archive medium. DNA is a stable information carrier, with 10,000-year-old intact sequences routinely recovered from historical samples. Safe DNA storage conditions are easily maintained at low cost, and the ability to read DNA fragments will surely survive for as long as there are technologically-advanced humans inquisitive about the working of living systems. In our proof-of-concept experiment, we showed how existing DNA technologies can be used to store and recover digital information in a manner that could be extrapolated to global data scales, incorporating modern methods such as error correcting codes for data integrity. This talk will describe this experiment, and will speculate on the future of DNA as a digital storage medium. This talk is a keynote address in the scope of the conferences iPRES-2013/DC-2013 The conferences require registration but this talk will be open to free audience. Bio >PhD Yale University, 2005. At EMBL-EBI since 2005. Joint appointments in Genome Biology and Developmental Biology Units. Associate Investigator, Wellcome Trust - Medical Research Council Stem Cell Institute, University of Cambridge.

Scalable Design of Heterogeneous System-on-Chip Platforms

A presentation by Prof. Luca Carloni, Columbia University, USA, <p> IST, room EA1, June 19th, 14h <p>

Heterogeneous System-on-Chip (SoC) architectures are emerging as a fundamental computing platform for a variety of systems from mobile devices to data centers. The growing complexity of SoC design calls for an increased usage of system-level design methods, high-level synthesis, and reusable components. In particular, while the design of a single component is important, the critical challenges are in the integration and management of many heterogeneous components, including programmable cores and specialized hardware accelerators. In addressing these challenges we sustain that communication plays an increasingly central role both at design time and run time. We propose a communication-based system-level design methodology that simplifies the design and validation of heterogeneous SoC platforms by enabling important properties like modularity, scalability, flexibility, and reusability. We also present recent results on compositional system-level design-space exploration, a novel approach that provides a foundation to achieve scalable synthesis for SoC platforms. <p> Luca Carloni is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Columbia University in the City of New York. He holds a Laurea Degree Summa cum Laude in Electronics Engineering from the University of Bologna, Italy, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from the University of California, Berkeley. His research interests include methodologies and tools for multi-core system-on-chip platforms with emphasis on system-level design and communication synthesis, design and optimization of networks-on-chip, and distributed embedded systems. He coauthored over one hundred refereed papers and is the holder of two patents. Luca received the Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the National Science Foundation in 2006, was selected as an Alfred P.

ACM/IFIP/Usenix Middleware 2011

ACM/IFIP/Usenix Middleware Conference 2011 <br>General Chairs: Paulo Ferreira, INESC-ID, Lisboa; Luís Veiga, INESC-ID, Lisboa <br> PC Chairs: Anne-Marie Kermarrec, INRIA-Rennes; Fabio Kon, USP, Brazil

The Middleware conference is a forum for the discussion of important innovations and recent advances in the design, construction and uses of middleware. Middleware is a distributed-system software that resides between applications and underlying platforms (operating systems; databases; hardware), and/or ties together distributed applications, databases or devices. Its primary role is to coordinate and enable communication between different layers or components while isolating much of the complexity of distribution into a single, well tested and well understood system abstraction. Following the success of the past conferences in this series in Lake District, UK (1998), in Palisades, NY (2000), in Heidelberg, Germany (2001), in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2003), in Toronto, Canada (2004), in Grenoble, France (2005) , in Melbourne, Australia (2006), in Long Beach, California (2007), in Leuven, Belgium (2008), in Urbana Champaign, USA (2009), in Bengaluru, India (2010), the 12th International Middleware Conference will be the premier event for middleware research and technology in 2011. The scope of the conference is the design, implementation, deployment, and evaluation of distributed system platforms and architectures for future computing and communication environments. Highlights of the conference will include a high quality technical program, invited speakers, an industrial track, poster and demo presentations, a doctoral symposium, and workshops.

A crash course on Reinforcement Learning

The purpose of this course is to provide basic familiarity with reinforcement learning (RL) to any students or researchers who may wish to pursue research in this topic. The course will take place at INESC-ID TagusPark, from 17th to 31th of July.

Reinforcement Learning (RL) addresses the problem of an agent that must learn how to optimally complete a given task. In its most general formulation, the agent is assumed to have no knowledge on the environment/task. Therefore, it must learn this optimal course of action by direct interaction with the environment, using whatever information is useful for the task at hand. It also receives evaluative feedback from the environment that assesses how well the agent is currently doing. As will be apparent along the course, reinforcement learning addresses problems lying in the intersection of artificial intelligence, machine learning and control theory, binding several ideas from these topics in an elegant yet rigorous way.

MARIE CURIE IRSES

MARIE CURIE International Research Staff Exchange Scheme <p>The European Commission's Directorate General for Research has published a call for proposals for the Marie Curie International Research Staff Exchange Scheme (IRSES). The call is part of the 2009 People work programme of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). <p>The IRSES is a new type of action. It aims to strengthen research partnerships through staff exchanges and networking activities between European research organisations and organisations from countries with which the Community has a science and technology agreement or is in the process of negotiating one, and countries covered by the European Neighbourhood policy. It was first implemented in 2008. <p>While existing Marie Curie actions promote mobility of individual researchers, this new scheme is designed to establish or reinforce long-term research cooperation through a coordinated joint programme of exchange of researchers for short periods. <p>Financial support will be provided for a period of 24 to 48 months for the transnational exchange of researchers, technical and management staff. <p>This action addresses partnership composed of at least two independent research organisations established in at least two different Member States or Associated countries, and one or more organisations either located in countries with which the Community has an S&T agreement or are in the process of negotiations, or in countries covered by the European Neighbourhood Policy.

<li> Call identifier: FP7-PEOPLE-2009-IRSES <li> Date of publication: 25 November 2008 <li> Deadline: 27 March 2009 at 17.00.00 Brussels local time <li> Indicative budget: EUR 30 million of the 2009 budget. The final budget awarded to this call, following the evaluation of projects, may vary up to 10% of the total value of the call.

Prémio Power Aware Computing (PAC) 2008

Recent developments such as the climate debate, concern over fossil fuel use and the rising cost of energy have thrown the spotlight on power consumed by computing devices. Data centers alone currently consume 1.5% of the power produced in the USA, and are projected to reach 4.5% within 5 years. Some fields such as mobile and embedded devices have seen dramatic advances, yet the focus for general desktop, data center and HPC computing has remained firmly on pure compute performance.

Research and innovations within the industry offer the possibility for significant improvement in power efficiency for computing. Software as a service suggests economies of scale, advances in flash memory offer hybrid drives that may outperform traditional drives both in speed and power efficiency, and the advent of multi-core and possibly many-core chips presents a potential for better energy efficiency for a system under variable load. <p>The intent of this RFP is to stimulate novel research into increasing energy efficiency, thereby reducing the power consumption of computing. We are soliciting work that has the potential to become part of a large research portfolio, and we encourage proposals that are outside the usual line of enquiry. <p>Awards The total amount available under this request for proposals (RFP) is $500,000. Microsoft Research anticipates making approximately 5 awards averaging $100,000, with a maximum of $150,000 for any single award. All awards will be made in $US. Awards are generally made as unrestricted gifts to the institution. <p>Schedule and Deadlines <p>Announcement January 23, 2008 First date for submission of proposals: January 23, 2008 Last date for submission of proposals: March 11, 2008, 14:00 PM PST (Note: PST= -8 UTC/GMT) Notification of Awards: April 23, 2008 Please be advised that we are obligated to strictly adhere to the deadline date and time. The application system will not accept submissions after the deadline has expired. Exceptions to this policy cannot be granted. It is advisable to upload your submission well in advance of the deadline.

INESC-ID organiza debate sobre o ensino experimental

Em colaboração com o IT e o ISR, e no âmbito do Conselho dos Laboratórios Associados, o INESC-ID organiza um debate sobre o ensino experimental nas escolas. O debate terá lugar na quinta-feira, dia 19/10, pelas 14h, no Salão Nobre do IST.

Dadas as crescentes necessidades de profissionais qualificados nas áreas de ciência e tecnologia, e a tendência para um cada vez maior afastamento de grande parte dos estudantes destas áreas, urge mobilizar os diversos graus de ensino para uma maior utilização do ensino experimental como veículo de ensino. Acreditamos que a utilização mais intensiva de ensino experimental nas escolas permitirá não só formar novas gerações de estudantes com uma sensibilidade mais profunda para as questões relacionadas com a ciência e a tecnologia, mas também tornar mais apelativas estas áreas, que cada vez enfrentam uma competição mais intensa de outros sectores. Neste debate, um conjunto de investigadores, professores do ensino superior e professores do ensino secundário propõem-se analisar esta questão, com um especial foco nos mecanismos de cooperação e colaboração que poderão e deverão ser estabelecidos entre as universidades e as escolas secundárias por forma a potenciar os efeitos desta estratégia. Esta iniciativa enquadra-se num conjunto de iniciativas levadas a cabo pelo Conselho de Laboratórios Associado com o objectivo de reunir contribuições para o debate nacional sobre a educação.

Coreworks, a startup with origin in INESC-ID makes the news

Coreworks, a startup that is developing a technology originally created at INESC-ID, is the object of a EETimes article.

LONDON — Coreworks SA, a provider of silicon intellectual property and design services, has agreed an investment funding round of 700,000 euro (about $880,000) with Espirito Santa Ventures and INESC-ID, the research institute where Coreworks originated. The money would used to hire two additional designers Jose de Sousa, the president and CEO of Coreworks (Lisbon, Portugal) said. De Sousa said Coreworks, although in operation since 2001 has been active since 2003 and has six permanent staff. "We already have revenue from customers," said de Sousa, who pointed out that about 70 percent of that revenue comes from licensing of intellectual property and the remaining 30 percent that comes from design services is related to embedding and customizing intellectual property. The company has a particular expertise in digital audio and has developed cores multichannel sample rate conversion, amongst others.

INESC-ID e Microsoft desenvolvem comunicação natural pessoa-máquina

A Microsoft assinou protocolos de colaboração com o INESC-ID que visam potenciar a investigação e desenvolvimento na área da comunicação natural pessoa – computador em língua portuguesa.

Os objectos dos protocolos e contrato assinados com o INESC–ID centram-se nas actividades do Centro Microsoft para o Desenvolvimento da Linguagem e vêm materializar uma das medidas do Memorando de Entendimento de suporte ao Plano Tecnológico Nacional, nomeadamente a medida número 3 – sobre Difusão da fala e língua natural portuguesa – que prevê o desenvolvimento, pela Microsoft, de um programa efectivo de Investigação e Desenvolvimento no Centro Microsoft de Desenvolvimento da Fala e Língua Natural em Portugal e dedicado ao tratamento computacional da língua portuguesa. O INESC-ID/L2F irá proceder à transferência de conhecimento na aquisição e processamento de corpora de fala, um componente fundamental para o desenvolvimento de tecnologias de reconhecimento de fala aplicáveis a nichos de mercado especí&#64257;cos, ou a produtos como o Exchange 12/Uni&#64257;ed Messaging, que usam a interacção por fala. O trabalho entre as partes envolve a colaboração na de&#64257;nição de metodologias padrão e de processos apropriados para a de&#64257;nição de um serviço de recolha de corpora de fala telefónica, ou de outro tipo, em língua portuguesa, não só para o português europeu, mas para as variedades da língua portuguesa faladas nos países de língua o&#64257;cial portuguesa, nomeadamente, os africanos e Timor-Leste. No âmbito da actividade pro&#64257;ssional do Grupo de Interfaces Multimodais Inteligentes, o INESC-ID/IMM irá colaborar com a Microsoft em iniciativas e acções na investigação, desenvolvimento e demonstração de interfaces multimodais naturais, combinando o reconhecimento da fala (em português), os gestos, o seguimento da pose corporal, a detecção de movimento, o rastreio de informação biométrica e, ainda, a detecção da pressão exercida pelo utilizador, em ambientes de informação sensorial rica, proporcionada por espaços imersivos com visualização em ecrãs de grande dimensão. A colaboração abrangerá projectos de I&D utilizando interfaces multimodais naturais (incluindo a fala) para pessoas com necessidades especiais em ambientes de computação móvel e ubíqua e abrangerá estudos de avaliação da usabilidade da interacção natural multimodal pessoa-máquina em contextos aplicacionais utilizando a fala em português.

DIGraSys participa no desenvolvimento de um Sistema Realidade Virtual para a Câmara de Seia

O Grupo DIGraSys (Distributed Interactive Graphic Systems) participa no desenvolvimento do Sistema de Realidade Virtual da Serra da Estrela (SRV-SE) para o Centro de Interpretação da Serra da Estrela (CISE) da Câmara Municipal de Seia (CMS).

O Grupo DIGraSys (Distributed Interactive Graphic Systems) participa no desenvolvimento do Sistema de Realidade Virtual da Serra da Estrela (SRV-SE) para o Centro de Interpretação da Serra da Estrela (CISE) da Câmara Municipal de Seia (CMS). Este projecto é coordenado pela empresa SIQuant (http://www.siquant.pt) e foi alvo de um artigo apresentado na I Conferência Nacional de Turismo e Tecnologias de Informação Geográfica. O SRV-SE é um sistema multimédia que permite navegar pela Serra da Estrela, explorando e visualizando conteúdos 3D, proporcionando uma visita virtual em tempo real a este importante espaço natural e histórico-cultural de Portugal. O SRV-SE vai estar muito brevemente disponível nas instalações do CISE em quiosques multimédia. O CISE é um instrumento essencial na execução da politica ambiental do Concelho de Seia, tendo como principais actividades: a interpretação da Serra da Estrela; o apoio à investigação; a promoção de um Turismo de Natureza ambientalmente correcto. Para o SRV-SE foram desenvolvidos modelos 3D de Portugal, da Serra da Estrela e de Sítios de Interesse da Serra. Para além do utilizador poder sobrevoar em tempo real e de forma imersiva os modelos 3D, outras funcionalidades são-lhe disponibilizadas, nomeadamente a navegação entre diferentes modelos, a selecção do meio de navegação (em biplano, parapente, balão e dirigível), a selecção e navegação sobre roteiros predefinidos e a consulta de informação complementar ao nível de cada sítio de interesse. Com base nestes modelos foi produzido um filme tridimensional para visualização nos quiosques e na sala multimédia do CISE. O Grupo DIGraSys teve um papel relevante no projecto, sendo responsável pela programação da aplicação de navegação e visualização de realidade virtual. A aplicação foi desenvolvida sobre o sistema de software da EON Reality e já motivou o anúncio de uma press release que pode ser consultada em: http://www.eonreality.com/news/news_archive/press_releases05_17_06.htm. Este projecto conta ainda com a colaboração das seguintes entidades: SIQuant, que para além da coordenação geral, esteve envolvida na produção do Sistema de Informação Geográfica e apoio ao desenvolvimento da aplicação de realidade virtual; Caixa D’Imagens que foi responsável pela criação de 20 modelos 3D interactivos da Serra da estrela, pela produção dos qiosques multimédia e pela produção de um filme 3D de 4 minutos; e o IST/DECivil que esteve encarregue do desenvolvimento da aplicação de consulta da informação geográfica com base no Google Earth. Mais informações sobre este projecto, incluindo um filme e brochuras, podem ser consultadas em: http://www.siquant.pt/portal/CISE@138@-1.aspx; http://www.caixadimagens.pt/html/s_proj_srv_se.html; http://www.eonreality.com/news/news_archive/press_releases05_17_06.htm

Interspeech2005 in the news (Lusa)

05-09-2005 12:23:00. Fonte LUSA. Notícia SIR-7292808 Temas: sociedade portugal ciência lisboa Ciência: Mais de mil especialistas discutem relação entre máquina e fala

Lisboa, 05 Set (Lusa) - Com o objectivo de discutir e conhecer o que de mais recente se tem feito sobre a tecnologia linguística e da fala, cerca de 1.300 investigadores e especialistas reúnem-se a partir de hoje em Lisboa numa conferência internacional. "A ideia é que se troquem ideias sobre o que se anda a fazer no mundo acerca dos sistemas desenvolvidos na área da fala, da língua e da tecnologia", explicou à agência Lusa Luís Oliveira, investigador do Instituto Superior Técnico e membro da organização da conferência. Na Interspeech 2005, 9ª Conferência Europeia de Tecnologia e Comunicação Falada, que decorre até quinta-feira em Lisboa, participarão, por exemplo, os investigadores que criaram o sistema que o cientista Stephen Hawking (que tem um problema cerebral que lhe afecta a fala e a locomoção) utiliza para comunicar com o mundo. Na sessão de abertura, hoje no Centro Cultural de Belém, a sede da Interspeech, o investigador australiano Graeme Clark apresentou o trabalho que tem desenvolvido com pessoas que têm problemas auditivos. Premiado pela associação que organiza este fórum internacional, Graeme Clark desenvolveu um sistema de implantes, que inclui um circuito de computador, que estimula a cóclea, o chamado parafuso de Arquimedes, na parte do ouvido interno. "O sistema permite que pessoas surdas à nascença consigam normalizar do ponto de vista auditivo", explicou Luís Oliveira, antes de Clark iniciar a apresentação. É pela diversidade de abordagens à fala que a conferência de Lisboa conta com a participação de especialistas de diferentes áreas científicas, da informática à engenharia linguística, da reabilitação à terapia e à medicina. O diálogo entre máquina e fala também será abordado em Lisboa, como o uso dos computadores no desenvolvimento linguístico. "Há um degrau a ultrapassar porque o computador ainda não é suficientemente inteligente", referiu Luís Oliveira, do Inesc - Instituto de Engenharia de Sistemas e Computadores. Dando como exemplo os telemóveis, o investigador português refere que os sistemas computacionais aceitam vocabulário falado, mas não o compreendem e é preciso humanizar e estabelecer diálogos com o computador, uma realidade não muito distante e que poderá estar ao alcance de todos mais depressa do que se pensa. Até quinta-feira, a intenção é mesmo promover a troca de informação sobre os desafios da fala entre os mais de mil participantes, muitos deles oriundos dos Estados Unidos, Japão e China. No encerramento do Interspeech 2005, o tema a ser abordado será o fado, com Teresa Machado e Daniel Gouveia a explicarem e a interpretarem os diferentes estilos, evolução histórica e temática. SS.

Interspeech 2005 trata la comunicación oral entre personas y máquinas LVD - 06/09/2005 - 16.01 horas

Lisboa. (EFE).- Interspeech 2005, la mayor conferencia mundial sobre la "Comunicación oral entre personas y máquinas", reúne en Lisboa a unos 1.300 científicos que trabajan para que los ordenadores comprendan a los humanos y dialoguen con ellos. La reunión, que se celebra en el Centro Cultural de Belém de Lisboa, ya dedicó el lunes a cursos para especialistas en el lenguaje. La encargada de la organización, la portuguesa Isabel Trancoso, recordó que hay programas informáticos que reproducen lo dictado por las personas, pero sin llegar a entenderlo, por lo que el "gran desafío" es que los ordenadores consigan "extraer el significado" del texto, descifrar totalmente el lenguaje humano, mantener diálogos e identificar voces. "Hoy en día se consigue que una máquina entienda alguna cosa en dominios limitados", debido a que los ordenadores tienen dificultades para "manejarse con los diálogos espontáneos de las personas, con sus dudas o volver atrás en la conversación". Trancoso explicó que ya existen "contadores de cuentos", ordenadores que consiguen imitar las voces de las personas, pero que todavía no son capaces de transmitir emociones ni eliminar totalmente el sonido de sintetizador. La especialista considera que éste es un gran progreso y reconoció que en el futuro "podrá tener implicaciones en términos de seguridad, como el reconocimiento de voces a la entrada de edificios o al teléfono". Para Trancoso el "gran sueño" es hablar en cualquier idioma y que la máquina lo traduzca a cualquier otro exactamente con la misma voz, aunque reconoció que todavía está lejos de hacerse realidad. Esta es la sexta conferencia mundial Interspeech, en la que se presentarán cerca de 800 artículos y que cuenta con el patrocinio de la Presidencia de la República. Además de la comunicación entre ordenadores y humanos, durante la conferencia se tratará también sobre ambientes ruidosos, dispositivos portátiles y "manos libres", computación afectiva, traducción habla-habla, dar voz a los ciudadanos con necesidades especiales, enseñanza asistida de la lengua y telecomunicaciones.
