Chaos and Complex Systems Seminar
Speech as a dynamical system
Tuesday, March 13, 2018
4274 Chamberlin Hall
Ben Parrell, UW Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, will discuss the control of speech intelligibility, in which a set of over 100 muscles must be precisely coordinated in space and time to produce rapid movements (50-300 ms) at a high rate (roughly 40 unique sounds per second), proposing that speech is a hierarchical dynamical system.
