Learning Outcomes
After completing the course, the students will be able to identify, analyze, and process basic parameters of voice signals. They will also be able to understand and suggest basic ways of processing and analyzing voice for specific problems, e.g. voice recognition. Finally, they will be able to recognize the basic features of the physiology of the voice and its association with the above technical characteristics.
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
  • Adapt to new situations
  • Make decisions
  • Work autonomously
  • Work in teams
  • Work in an international context
  • Work in an interdisciplinary team
  • Generate new research ideas

  • Demonstrate social, professional and ethical commitment and sensitivity to gender issues
  • Be critical and self-critical
  • Advance free, creative and causative thinking
Course Content (Syllabus)
The aim of the course is to acquire knowledge in: 1) the production and perception of voice and language 2) disorders of production and perception of speech and language 3) models of digital recording and processing of voice and language (oral and written) and their disorders and deviations 4) voice and language reproduction models (oral and written) in order to apply this knowledge in the following: 1) high-tech systems (eg voice recognition systems, use of digital audio in robotic applications, cinema and video applications - self-learning systems, robot-interpreters, automatic translators, human-machine communication systems, human communication systems, etc) 2) medical applications (eg use of digital audio recording to diagnose and monitor voice disorders, use of cochlear implants to restore hearing, use of electrical stimuli to restore language perception and reproduce voice; etc)
