Great public speakers are made, not born. Practicing a presentation in front of a few colleagues (or a mirror) is common practice, and results in a set of subjective judgements what to improve. But can we estimate the quality of own delivery in a fair, unbiased, and repeatable way? Can we get subtle hints during a presentation (e.g., to speak louder or to slow down)? The goal of this thesis is to design and implement a smartphone-based presentation coach that constantly listens to the talk and estimates its effectiveness.
Your app should be able to compute how fast and loud the speaker speaks, estimate the complexity of his wording, count the number of ller words, etc.. Previous work on the subject has resulted in a iOS version of the app, which we would like to port to Android. If time permits we may extend the app with new features. Your ideas are very welcome!
