An Automated Mood Diary for Older User’s using Ambient Assisted Living Recorded Speech

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

In this paper, we describe a system for recording of mood diaries in the context of an ambient assisted living and intelligent coaching environment, which ensures privacy by design. The system performs affect recognition in speech features without recording speech content in any form. We demonstrate results of affect recognition models tested on data collected in care-home settings during the SAAM project (Supporting Active Ageing through Multimodal Coaching) using our custom-designed audio collection hardware. The proposed system was trained using Bulgarian speech augmented with training data obtained from comparable mood diaries recorded in Scottish English. A degree of transfer learning of Scottish English speech to Bulgarian speech was demonstrated.
