In September Eydís will be representing our group at the CogInfoCom 2017 Conference. This will be LVL’s second time at CogInfoCom in Hungary, and we hope it will be an exciting conference with valuable insights. She will be presenting her paper “Cognitive workload classification using cardiovascular measures and dynamic features.” This will be Eydís’ last conference and paper before her study abroad semester starts later this year. So we hope she stays healthy and enjoys her time in Hungary.

 

Article Publication in the Periodica Polytechnica Electrical Engineering and Computer Science journal

At CogInfoCom 2016, Eydís Huld Magnusdottir, gave a great presentation about Monitoring Cognitive Workload Using Vocal Tract and Voice Source Features. It was so informative in fact that the Periodica Polytechnica Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, a great open access journal, has published it. The article has the same name as the conference paper, Monitoring Cognitive Workload Using Vocal Tract and Voice Source Features. Eydís’ article is about the study she did in Iceland involving cognitive workload, Stroop tasks, and nearly 100 participants to find out whether vocal tract features perform better or worse than voice source features.

Pilot tests

The paralinguistic team finished gathering additional data for the Voice patterns in air-traffic control project in the second half of December.  The participants are all pilots working for Icelandair that came to us straight after grueling sessions in their flight simulator.

We want to thank all the participants and staff of Icelandair for their cooperation!
