Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 2023 9th International Conference on Computing and Artificial Intelligence (ICCAI 2023) and its combined conference—the 2023 5th International Conference on Intelligent Medicine and Image Processing (IMIP 2023)—are international conferences devoted specifically to the facilitation of synergies in research and development in the areas of computer and artificial intelligence, intelligent medicine and image processing. They provide communication platforms for leading experts and scholars worldwide.

This Topic will mainly focus on computer technology, information technology, intelligent computing, artificial intelligence, smart healthcare, medical informatics, medical imaging and image processing and other related areas. We cordially invite authors of selected papers from the conference to submit extended versions of their original papers and contributions under the conference topics.

Knowing the correct positioning of the tongue and mouth for pronunciation is crucial for learning English pronunciation correctly. Articulatory animation is an effective way to address the above task and helpful to English learners. However, articulatory animations are all traditionally hand-drawn. Different situations require varying animation styles, so a comprehensive redraw of all the articulatory animations is necessary. To address this issue, we developed a method for the automatic generation of articulatory animations using a deep learning system. Our method leverages an automatic keypoint-based detection network, a motion transfer network, and a style transfer network to generate a series of articulatory animations that adhere to the desired style. By inputting a target-style articulation image, our system is capable of producing animations with the desired characteristics. We created a dataset of articulation images and animations from public sources, including the International Phonetic Association (IPA), to establish our articulation image animation dataset. We performed preprocessing on the articulation images by segmenting them into distinct areas each corresponding to a specific articulatory part, such as the tongue, upper jaw, lower jaw, soft palate, and vocal cords. We trained a deep neural network model capable of automatically detecting the keypoints in typical articulation images. Also, we trained a generative adversarial network (GAN) model that can generate end-to-end animation of different styles automatically from the characteristics of keypoints and the learned image style. To train a relatively robust model, we used four different style videos: one magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) articulatory video and three hand-drawn videos. For further applications, we combined the consonant and vowel animations together to generate a syllable animation and the animation of a word consisting of many syllables. Experiments show that this system can auto-generate articulatory animations according to input phonetic symbols and should be helpful to people for English articulation correction. Full article
