Timo Baumann

Dr. Timo Baumann, Diplom-Informatiker

Acting professor for machine learning at the Department of Informatics at Universität Hamburg.

I research spoken language, in particular in interactive and multi-modal scenarios, such as in spoken dialogue systems. My particular interests lie in responsiveness in interaction and I have been one of the main drivers of incremental spoken dialogue systems. Beyond that, I create and use corpora of spoken language, such as the Spoken Wikipedia Corpus. Feel free to have a look at my recent projects.
