audEERING sponsors ComParE 2016
The INTERSPEECH 2016 Computational Paralinguistics Challenge (ComParE) shall help bridging the gap between excellent research on paralinguistic information in spoken language and low compatibility of results. Overall, three Sub-Challenges are addressed: In the Deception Sub-Challenge, deceptive speech has to be identified, in the Sincerity Sub-Challenge, perceived sincerity of speakers has to be determined, and in the Native Language Sub-Challenge, the native language of non-native English speakers from eleven countries has to be recognized. All Sub-Challenges allow contributors to find their own features with their own machine learning algorithm. Results will be presented at Interspeech 2016.
