CONNECT’s Stephen Roddy to present at HCIC2018 in Belfast

Stephen Roddy, CONNECT postdoc at Trinity College Dublin, is presenting his research this week at the 32nd Human Computer Interaction Conference in Belfast.

Stephen’s paper, “An Empirical Study of Listener Associations between Vowel Formant Profiles and Image Schemas and Tension Release Patterns in the Context of Auditory Display”, looks at some preliminary experiments which examine how digitally synthesised vowel sounds are processed cognitively by a listener. This is relevant to his current work in auditory display for large-scale IoT networks.

Stephen will also perform later this month at xCoAx in Madrid. He will demonstrate a generative music system that uses AI to augment a live improvised performance by pulling data from the Smart Dublin Dublinked Open Data Store.

He also has a book chapter coming out this month in “New Directions in Third Wave Human-Computer Interaction: Volume 2 – Methodologies.”

Congratulations on a busy month!
