The Feelings Lab Episode 19: Special Conversation ICML ExVo Workshop and Competition Panel

Vocalizations like laughs and sighs provide avenues to optimize AI for our well-being. Dr. Kory Mathewson, Dr. Gauthier Gidel, Dr. Panagiotis Tzirakis, and Dr. Alice Baird join us to discuss expressive vocalizations and machine learning.

Join us for our podcast on expressive vocalizations and machine learning, where we discuss the powerful, contagious non-word utterances like yelps, laughs, and sighs that play a critical role in our social and emotional lives and provide new channels for human-computer interaction. Our guests include Hume AI CEO Dr. Alan Cowen, Creative Destruction Lab and DeepMind research scientist Dr. Kory Mathewson, Dr. Gauthier Gidel, professor at the Université de Montréal and Mila faculty member, and Hume AI Research Scientists Dr. Panagiotis Tzirakis and Alice Baird.

We begin with Dr. Alan Cowen explaining the need to study vocal bursts: the powerful, contagious non-word utterances like yelps, laughs, and sighs that play a critical role in our social and emotional lives.

Dr. Gauthier Gidel, professor at the Université de Montréal and Mila faculty member, shares the powerful story behind his involvement in the ICML Expressive Vocalization Workshop and Challenge.

DeepMind research scientist Dr. Kory Mathewson and Dr. Gauthier Gidel, professor at the Université de Montréal and Mila faculty member, discuss how new datasets like the ExVo challenge data are essential to progress in understanding vocal expression.

DeepMind research scientist Dr. Kory Mathewson and Dr. Gauthier Gidel, professor at the Université de Montréal and Mila faculty member, discuss their hopes for the future of auditory machine learning.
