You sound odd... Exploration of mood prediction using speech

In this master topic we are interested in researching how the changes in the voice in combination with sensor data can be used to predict the physical conditions and mood of a person.
Master

How people speak can be an important indicator about their psychological and physical state. Audio signal analysis of speech is one tool that can be used to explore this. In addition it would be interesting to study how additional sensor data can help to improve the predictions based on the audio content.
