Use cases

Here you can find an overview of the several works, which are already using the ARIA-VALUSPA framework. Our framework can be found at GitHub.

If you and your team are also using our framework, we would be pleased to feature your work here and also on our twitter and facebook account.

Vahl Detect

The application "Vahl Detect" uses ARIA-VALUSPA to build an access controll system with face recognition and liveness detection. The work, which is presented in the video below, was done by a student group of the University of Nottingham.

The virtual journalist

The use of virtual humans is consequently becoming increasingly popular in a wide range of areas where such
a natural communication might be beneficial, including entertainment, education, mental health research and beyond. Behind this development lies a series of technological advances in a multitude of disciplines, most notably natural language processing, computer vision,
and speech synthesis.

The project "Virtual Human Journalist" employs a number of novel solutions from these disciplines with the goal to demonstrate their viability by producing a humanoid conversational agent capable of naturally eliciting and reacting to information from a human user. A set of qualitative and quantitative evaluation sessions demonstrated the technical feasibility of the system whilst uncovering a number of deficits in its capacity to engage users in a way that would be perceived as natural and emotionally engaging. "The Virtual Journalist" started on the last years the eNTERFACE'16, at the University of Twente. It uses the latest Virtual Human technology developed in the ARIA-VALUSPA EU project.
