Title:
INFORMATION PROCESSING DEVICE, INFORMATION PROCESSING SYSTEM, INFORMATION PROCESSING METHOD, AND PROGRAM
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/150708
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
The present invention provides a device and a method for accurately identifying a speaker under various conditions. A speaker identification unit for identifying a speaker performs (a) speaker identification based on the comparison between the results of voice recognition for a spoken voice and the results of lipreading recognition for analyzing an utterance from the lip movement of a speaker, or (b) speaker identification based on the results of analysis for the action of the speaker or a listener. For example, the speaker identification unit: compares data estimating the times a speaker or listener nods with real nod timing data for a person nodding in an image captured by a camera, the estimated nod timing being estimated on the basis of an utterance text string obtained as voice recognition results; and determines whether the person nodding in the image captured by the camera is a speaker or a listener on the basis of the degree of coincidence.
