We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.
(Arthur O'Shaughnessy)

Thesis submitted 2 June 2010 and awarded, subject to minor revisions on 29 October 2010.

Many thanks to those who have helped, encouraged and inspired me along the way.

My focus is on linking video and audio evidence to a person's emotional state.

The human computer interface is, for other than basic I/O operations, limited without some level of incorporation of the affective human state. An interface that responds and adapts to emotions can be more satisfying, much more productive and can provide many opportunities. One of the most natural interfaces is speech and we know that evidence of emotions are often present in speech. Emotion recognition in speech by computers could provide many benefits.

The goal of my research is to improve the recognition of emotions in speech. There are many opportunities in area of assistive technology, speech recognition, and making multi-modal user interfaces much more intuitive and sensitive to the human user state.
