Description
It is known that humans can, and do, lip-read but not much is known about exactly what visual information is needed for effective lip-reading, particularly in non-laboratory environments. This project will collect data for lip-reading and use it to build automatic lip-reading systems: machines that convert videos of lip-motions into text. To be effective such systems must accurately track the head over a variety of poses; extract numbers, or features, that describe the lips and then learn what features correspond to what text. To tackle the problem we will need to use information collected from audio speech. So this project will also investigate how to use the e...
