Ella Page- Summer Student

I have been working on annotating the competitiveness of overlapping talk in the corpus data set for my undergraduate summer research placement. I was very fortunate to be able to attend the Leeds Multimodal Conference and iCog workshop and see the interest that people have for this project.

From this placement I have learnt from the focus group about the amount of difficulties faced by cochlear implant users in group conversations, including the challenge of competition in group conversations. This is a topic that I have quickly developed interest in during this summer placement and has compelled me to continue working towards this project for my dissertation.
