Lecture Universiteit van Nederland online

Posted on

Thank you to Universiteit van Nederland for inviting me to record a lecture on the 25th of January, 2017 (in club AIR in Amsterdam) about how we can train robots to recognize emotions in speech. The lecture was part of the series “Slimme Computers” (Smart Computers). It was very fun to do! Last week, the lecture (in Dutch) was released online and on TV.
