Dear Visitor! Welcome to the INTERSPEECH 2017 YouTube channel: the place with the latest coverage from the 2017 INTERSPEECH festival August 20-24 in Stockholm! The theme of INTERSPEECH 2017 is Situated interaction. Face-to-face interaction is the primary use of speech, and arguably also the richest, most effective and most natural kind of speech communication. The situation, context and human behaviors are intrinsic parts that continuously shape and form the interaction. In attempting to understand this situated interaction, we face a fruitful and real challenge for the speech communication community: To investigate what kinds of situational awareness, social sensibilities and conversational abilities we should endow machines with for them to engage in conversations with humans on human terms.
