Talking Heads: Speech Embodied Cognition

Philip Rubin
CEO (on leave) and Senior Scientist, Haskins Laboratories
Adjunct Professor, Department of Surgery, Yale School of Medicine
Assistant Director for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences, Office of Science and Technology Policy, Executive Office of the President of the United States

A history and overview of some attempts to create human speech by modeling how speech is produced, including the contributions of the speech articulators (tongue, jaw, lips, etc.), facial information, and gesture. One particular tool will be featured: the Haskins articulatory synthesizer, an early system designed to help explore aspects of embodiment: i.e. how our physiology shapes, in part, our cognitive capacities.
