The aim of the technology developed in the Human-computer interaction (HCI) area is to provide tools for achieving natural interaction between human beings, machines and their environment, besides improving user experience. We work on speech and speaker recognition, the analysis of gestures and expressions on different modalities (image, voice, text, and their combination), and the identification of environmental sounds to adapt the interaction to the environment and the user. Moreover, we are focused on developing a proprietary speech synthesis system (text-to-speech synthesis and voice transformation), together with the generation of virtual characters (avatars) with natural movements (from MoCap), and the mining and indexing of multimedia data. There is a myriad of potential applications of these technologies, such as: videogames, animated TV series, audiovisual productions, collaborative virtual environments, Smart Cities (e.g. information points), Healthcare (e.g. tele-assistance), etc.
