Workshop on dynamical system in speech, January 11, 2021

LiRI is pleased to announce a workshop on «dynamical system in speech» offered by Dr. Leonardo Lancia from Paris III. 
The one-day workshop will be held on Jan. 11, 2021 via Zoom. Both theoretical and practical sessions will be included. 
 
A tentative outline of the workshop: 
 
Part I. symbols and processes. How the application of dynamical system theory aims at linking the symbolic and material aspects of speech production.

1 DS concepts and taxonomy

2 Connecting dynamical systems and human (goal-oriented) behavior 

3 Self-organizing properties of complex dynamics and the functioning of the sensorimotor system

4 Properties of dynamical systems and where to find them

 

Part II. analyses 

1 The two approaches to time series analysis: modeling shapes vs modeling dynamics.

2 Extracting information relevant to the analysis of the dynamics underlying observed time series.

3 Decomposition

4 Other approaches
