Tina Valerin in Norwich asked:

All these data analysis are very well but really, is it any more complicated than just hand writing analysis gone bonkers? Is this really meaningful?


Jason -   In the case of detecting emotions from speech, this is a very well established line of research and we can ask individuals how they're feeling and we can use other sorts of methods to assess emotions.  Essentially, what we are doing are identifying speech cues that are valid indicators of peopleís psychological states.  And so, in that sense, I think itís a perfectly valid and robust method.
